Each time I meet an author I am really inspired by their creativity and talent. What inspires me most about Judith is that she clearly gets great joy from her work, and this is evident when she talks about it and shares it with others.
Joey Chou’s Make & Play Farm is unique and creative, packed with many opportunities for imaginative play and storytelling. This book is enormous fun, and emphasises that books are full of possibilities.
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.
When looking through books to add to the Aussie Animals Smarty Arty experience I found a lot of indigenous books. These books engage children in aspects of Aboriginal culture, beautiful art work and stories of Australian Animals. The library I borrowed them from had such a good variety of indigenous themed books that I found it hard to chose, but these are some which I thought would be fun to pair with the art experience.
It’s School holidays here in Australia but storytime has still been happening at most branches of our library. Yesterday I had the privilege of taking a preschool session and we had so much fun. I had some really lovely books about bears that I wanted to read to the children so that is why I chose this theme.
Recently I did a couple of different story times based on dinosaurs at two different libraries. I was excited to use the Knock Knock Dinosaur book by Nick East that I recently reviewed at both the story times and it was a hit! Both sessions were different sizes so the other books I chose were based on those groups, so the other books I used were different at each session.
