Finding a million dollars in your backyard — every kid's dream, right? That's how one of our favourite new kids books Secrets of a Schoolyard Millionaire begins, and it's got us thinking... What would we do with a gobsmacking million dollars? And what would YOU do?!
Find out in our July School Holiday Workshop for kids aged 7-11! Nat Amoore, the author of Secrets of a Schoolyard Millionaire will be joining us as we brainstorm, write, draw, and play with our mysterious, marvellous million dollar fortune.
