Fendalton Open-Air School Library Blog

Welcome to the Fendalton Open-Air school library blog. This is the place where reading for fun is our main focus. There are heaps of reviews, author and illustrator links, and book trailer links. There are games to play on the homework page and ideas for parents as well. Feel free to leave a comment on any of the posts.
