Clunes Booktown for Kids – a world before vegemite

The early 1900s is a world before vegemite. A time when the first teddy bears, cellophane, crayons, cornflakes, crosswords, paper notepads,  and radio were invented. It was a time Australia became a federation and a time we fought in the Great War. Its an amazing time to take as our kid’s Booktown theme.
