Oh my goodness … Book Week is SO close … you can almost … touch it!
We are excited … VERY excited … you can feel it in the Library … you can see it on the walls … you can touch the books … SO SO close ..
Did you have fun last week sharing your favourite Aussie stories? Picking ‘just one’ isn’t easy is it?
To keep you on your toes … here is our #3 idea for something you could share as a family .
#3 Let’s look at Aussie authors …
Think about your favourite Aussie tales. Who wrote them? Do you have an Aussie author whose books you just love? What makes that author’s work special to you?
This week we focus on the people behind the tales we love – and share our love of their work.
Again … have a look in our Library catalogue to see if we have books by that author, and come and borrow some of them.
Or you could try the Yarra Plenty Library – if a book is at another branch, place a Hold and ask them to transfer it to the branch near you.
To get you thinking, here are some of our favourites … with links to their websites.
