Bologna Children's Book Fair 2016 (Part 1 of 3)

This month, I attended my fourth Bologna Children's Book Fair! It's interesting to witness in person how the fair and children's book industry change each year.

Bologna Children's Book Fair is packed with events, beautiful exhibitions and children's books. With comfortable sneakers on and a light compact camera, I tried to visit every corner at the fair and snap a lot of photos. I hope that people who didn't attend it this year would get a taste of what the fair was like from the photos I'm sharing.

If you're interested, below are the links to my blog posts of the previous fairs:
