"There is a magic in books that remains unsurpassed by any other medium. Story is one of the most powerful ways we can find out about the world - and the best stories leave us with more questions than answers". Kath Murdoch, education consultant (2015).

Join us for an afternoon of sharing and discussion over lunch as we explore numerous opportunities to engage your students with quality children's literature, that will not only spark their curiosity but link to several areas of your HASS content.

Please bring any HASS-related picture books that you have used with your students and your own laptop or ipad as we will be sharing online resources.

Lunch and resource pack included.
