To celebrate the launch of our exciting new series, The Dinosaur Detectives, we held a Dinosaur Day at Leicester’s New Walk Museum and Art Gallery.
Being an independent publisher outside of London can be difficult, but we love that at Sweet Cherry we’re able to share our books with kids in our local area and really interact with our readers. We are also lucky to have some great venues and attractions in Leicester, and New Walk Museum’s Dinosaur Gallery couldn’t have been a more perfect spot to hold this event.
The aim of the day was to get lots of children involved in the world of dinosaurs, and of course to spread the word about The Dinosaur Detectives!
Plenty of activities were happening throughout the day including a fact-finding dinosaur trail around the galleries and a magnificently messy arts and crafts table. We asked the kids to design us a new dino-themed book cover and got some awesome artwork, which you’ll be able to browse over on the Kids React page.
Stephanie, the author, came along to make the day even more special. In the storytelling corner, children got to hear Stephanie read from the books before getting their copies signed.
Head over to our Facebook page to check out the pictures of Dinosaur Day (and more importantly, to see our Editorial Assistant Alice dressed as a dinosaur).
The Dinosaur Detectives is out now and available individually or as a four-book box set.
