book reading Weetangera Primary

Thursday, 14 April 2011

It never fails to astound me how brilliant kids are - how they think so laterally and how they soak up information like that metaphoric sponge. I had such an amazing experience with two lots of kids today at Weetangera Primary - Grade 3/4 and Grade 5/6.

Such a bright and lovely bunch of kids - a boy named Sam was the first child to ever answer my [rather tricky] question - what is the term for a person who is both an author AND an illustrator? [answer at the bottom of this post]. I was so impressed, I nearly fell over on the stage.

Huge thanks to the wonderful Natarsha Van Den Boogaard for making me feel so so welcome, and to Lachie and all the lovely teachers who attended, too. Special hello to Annie who is a budding published author!

Answer: Author/Illustrator (sorry)

Thanks Tania for your inspiring presentation today. The children continued to speak about you and your stories even after you had left. I am sure that you have helped enthuse more children to become budding authors. I look forward to purchasing your new book and hearing about what adventures the wombat gets up too.

Kindest Regards,
