Book Week is almost here …

2016 Book Week LogoChildren’s Book Week is NEXT WEEK … August 22nd – 26th

Did your family have a go at sharing stories?  If you did, we hope you had fun.

With Book Week so close – here is our #2 ideas sheet for something to share as a family.

#2 Share your favourite Aussie stories/books/poetry …

What is/was your favourite Aussie tale?  Ask your child what their favourites are.  Find them and read them together.

Here is the link to our Library catalogue – browse with your child and if we have the books they can borrow them.  If there’s a story you love – tell us, and we’ll get it.

Or you could try the Yarra Plenty Library – if a book is not at your local branch you can place a Hold and they will transfer it.

To get you thinking … here are some of our favourites …

  • Possum Magic by Mem Fox
  • The Very Cranky Bear by Nicholas Bland (or ANY of this series!)
  • The Man From Snowy River by A.B. Paterson
  • The Loaded Dog by Henry Lawson
  • A Bush Christmas by C.J. Dennis
  • My Grandma Lived in Gooligulch by Graham Base
  • Seven Little Australians by Ethel Turner
  • The Silver Brumby by Elyne Mitchell
  • The Complete Adventures of Blinky Bill by Dorothy Wall
  • My Place by Nadia Wheatley

Keep watching this space for more family fun ideas.
