Children’s Book WeekWhat an exciting Term 3 we have had so far! Here at Inaburra we celebrate “Children’s Book Week” for much more than a just a week. Our book celebrations go on for a whole term or more. Here’s an outline of what we have done…
Jacqueline Harvey’s book series Clementine Rose and Alice-Miranda have been very popular with our girls for a few years and we were luck y enough at the end of last term to have Jacqueline visit the girls in Years 2-6. She spoke about her books, her writing and gave some great pointers as to how to write great stories.
Book Fair was a big highlight this year. We sourced our books from two fabulous booksellers, Bloomin’ Books at Caringbah and Koorong at West Ryde. The books were of high quality and many families took the opportunity to purchase some lovely new books for themselves spending a total of $9000, our best yet. In addition many families chose to donate books to the Library and this is much appreciated. The school makes a profit out of this and all of this has been used to purchase even more lovely books for our Library. Watch out for the new ones on display soon.

Steven Herrick – Poetry to the Rescue was presented to Years 3-6 as part of Book Week and also to fit national Literacy Week where this year we had an emphasis on poetry. Steven was very entertaining, reading poems from many of his books and causing lots of laughter and fun. I was inundated immediately after with students wanting to borrow poetry books! The link to Steven’s site is also below – It’s worth watching some of his videos.
