Summer Reading Map

In the summer son decided to read books set in different countries. So after drawing & painting a map of the world, asking our local bookshop & twitter for suggestions he was ready to set off.

It was an epic journey discovering new authors, trying different genres, hunting out books set in exotic locations & remembering to write a postcard from each book.
