Following its successful CBD debut, the Itty Bitty Book Van is back by popular demand, calling Madame Brussels Lane home for one day only.

Children in and around Madame Brussels Lane are invited to bring a pre-loved picture book (in good condition) to the van and exchange it for a voucher. Following a storytelling session, children can then use their voucher to swap for another book to take home.

The concept is the brainchild of Geelong mum Kerri Bennett who said she wanted to find a way for her children to refresh their personal book collections without breaking the bank.

“Organised book swapping is both an economically and environmentally friendly way to keep young children interested in reading,” Kerri said.

“It’s really lovely to see children pass on a favourite story in the hope someone else will love it, and for them to find something else that will keep them entertained.”

For the first time ever, the first 100 guests will be treated to a reusable book bag courtesy of Sustainability Victoria.
