To the children out there. Books are a beautiful gift of imagination, knowledge and being lost in worlds where anything is possible. Enjoy this gift, soak it up and let your imagination soar.
Here is the final part to the Smarty Arty Aussie Animals theme. I have really enjoyed sharing this theme with you and am going to finish off with a few books that will be a lovely addition to your crafting session.
Today I just wanted to share some thoughts I had recently about literacy programs.
Each child has the the right to learn and be immersed in literacy in libraries, each person that walks through the doors should feel as valuable as the person before and after them.
Art, Play and Reading are the perfect opportunities for children to learn and extend their developmental and literacy skills, and stimulating their imagination and curiosity, while helping with brain development. All this is important to me which is why over the next couple of weeks I will be sharing with you an art kit from the Smarty Arty store about Aussie Animals and my pick of books to go with it.
I have been reading Pamela Allen books for as long as I can remember, her picture books are amazing and she is a favourite author of many Australian children and adults. Her books are engaging and sometimes funny, with familiar titles such as Who Sank the Boat? The Mr McGee books, and the popular (and very funny) Belinda. The newest addition to her collection, A Bag and a Bird features familiar places to children who live in Australia or have visited Sydney.
The excitement I felt when opening these three Little People Big Dreams book when they arrived in the mail is indescribable. I was presented with elegant and beautifully presented books, and I was instantly love with the possibilities of them.
