JP JUNIOR EVERLASTING BOOKS, an off shoot of JP Books (Educational Books)

Holding the fort for my good friend Dharma who is the driver behind JP Junior Everlasting Books, an off shoot of JP Books Educational Bookseller.

Everlasting Books specialises in selected picture books and favourites from a bygone era.

Dharma and I met through the Newport Fiddle and Folk Club almost a decade ago and quickly formed a bond over the ukulele and and interest in telling stories to the very young. Its not for the faint-hearted! Dharma has more songs and rhymes in her head than anyone I know. As our lives have grown busier and more complex, we have fewer opportunities to tell stories together but we always take time to do a session for the Newport Folk Festival the weekend of July 4 -5.

Every Thursday at 11.00 am, she tells stories and sings to small children and their carers. In over six years, she has never missed a session until the opportunity to go to Bali for a holiday came along.

It was my pleasure to sit in her place - but let me tell they are a very big pair of boots to fill!
