The hidden book trend in Braidwood has been going for three years Books are hidden in nooks and crannies all over town for kids to find.
The books are hidden in shop windows, parks and around the streets.
The concept is simple and follows the global painted rocks craze, where kids hunt for painted rocks around their local neighbourhood.
Mum of 10, Samantha Dixon, started the trend after seeing it on a community Facebook page overseas.
"It's lovely to watch the little kids' faces when they find the books.
Ms Dixon started hiding children's books around town as a way to give books a new life and bring joy to local kids.
"Aside from getting books into the hands of kids who deserve them, I can't imagine a home without books," she said. »
