A big crowd of enthusiastic little cricket fans were there to launch "Meet Donald Bradman" by Coral Vass at the Melbourne Cricket Ground Library today. The book is the latest in the series that celebrates the men and women that have shaped Australia.
Author Coral Vass donned the baggy green for the reading and even demonstrated The Don's early practice technique with a stump and golf ball. The story, together with beautiful illustrations, is a charming introduction to Bradman and to the Australian history of the time. My little ones love their copy and were reading it to anyone who would listen on the train ride home!
The iconic MCG was the perfect location to launch a delightful story about one of the most famous sportspeople in Australia.
This event was put on by Melbourne's beloved kid's bookstore The Little Bookroom where this title will be available from April 19th for $24.99.
