Special SRC event Making Picture Books Workshop with Aleesah Darlison Tuesday 14th January 2014. 

Some of our students had the wonderful experience of sharing a video conference with Aleesha Darlinson during 2012, which included the reading of her picture book, Puggle's Problem. Enjoy the reading of the story below.

Special SRC event Making Picture Books Workshop with Aleesah Darlison Tuesday 14th January 2014. Time: 10:00 - 11:30 at Coffs Harbour Library Cost: $5.00 per person. For ages 7 – 12 years. Bookings essential.
Aleesah, an author of children's picture books, provides an introduction to this exciting genre and leads children through exercises to create their very own picture book. Includes a writing and illustration component.

 Also during the holidays for times when you, or any other independent readers-think older siblings, grandparents, uncles, ... are not able to read to your child: Visit the Read to my Child website so your child does not miss out on this important daily developmental activity.

You can also use You Tube to Encourage Reading -a post by The Book Chook ."Use YouTube to entice your youngsters towards more wonderful picture books. You can find book trailers that give a sneak peek of the book's contents, but also there are whole picture book stories on YouTube."
