Ages 3+

Join author, Zanib Mian, as she reads from her wonderful picture book, My Dad’s Beard, told from the perspective of a young boy who loves his father (and his beard) very much. From tickly kisses to how it looks at different times of the day, come along to find out why he admires it and why Grandma, Mum and his little sister love it too!

Following the reading, Zanib will lead a fun craft activity for little fingers, giving you the chance to make a beard of your very own (as long and as tickly as you want!).
