The Story Crowd

This week I joined The Story Crowd.

The Story Crowd is passionate about literacy. We aim to inspire students to be keen readers and encourage budding writers and illustrators to pursue their dreams.

Our festivals are a full day celebration of literature with multiple sessions and activities. All held on your school grounds.

Suri’s Wall in schools

I was over the moon to discover that Suri’s Wall is already being used in schools. Many Vale used it as a supporting text for discussing Mental Health Week with K-4. I look forward to visiting next year when they tackle the topic of Migration. Thank you Manly Vale for seeing the value of picture books in helping children to address and respond to some of life’s more challenging issues.

Review by The Bottom Shelf

A wonderful review by The Bottom Shelf appeared this week.

This is a picture book for older children rather than the very young because those with a little more experience will appreciate the underlying story better, perhaps even understand that physical walls are not the only things that imprison us.
