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.

What’s Coming Up

This month I have a few awesome junior and teen novels as well as a stack of picture books that I will be reviewing. In the meantime I am reading a lot and loving what is coming out in Australia over July and August.  There really is something for all ages, some I cannot share until nearly the end of the month but in the mean time I have a mixture of new and old books to share with you.

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.
