Aussie Animals Indigenous Books – Smarty Art

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.

A Beary Busy Storytime

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.

The Artistic Literacy Experience

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.
