Last week Kindergarten enjoyed reading 'Look, A BOOK!" by Libby Gleeson and illustrated by Freya Blackwood. Freya Blackwood is one of my favourite illustrators and her wispy, romantic lines and simple colours, with the signature red colour flowing throughout this tale, does not disappoint. As an introduction to the concept of reading, re-reading and the power of imagination, 'Look, A BOOK!' has so many avenues to explore. It's minimal text provides ample opportunity for our students to create their own interpretations. What a treasure!
Kindergarten loved following up our shared story with colouring a Book Care Bookmark to keep inside their Library bag.
Our Year One and Two students also explored proper use of the Library space by reading 'Library Lion' by Michelle Knudsen and illustrated by Stephen Hawkes. Their innovations on this text with different animals and all the ways that they could help out in the Library were just gorgeous and very sensible. I wish I had some of these little (and big!) creatures in my Library to keep the shelves dust-free and shelve the books up high and down low.
