Book Week

Hello, everyone my name is Tayla. I am one of the Library monitors for 2017. Today I will be presenting two more books that have been shortlisted for this year’s Picture Storybook of the Year award.

The first book is “Home in the Rain” by Bob Graham. It is about a mother and her child who get stuck in their car while it pours heavily. While they are stuck the mother tells the child stories about her family.

The second book is called “My Brother” by Dee, Oliver and Tiffany Huxley. It is about a gentle creature who has lost its brother and would search the world to find him.

Have you read these books? Let us know what you think. Will they win?


Book Week 2017

Hi, my names Erin. I am one of the Library Monitors. Today I will be presenting 2 of the shortlisted picture story books for 2017.

One of the books is “One Photo“. It was written by Ross Watkins and illustrated by Liz Anelli. It’s about a dad who records what he most cares about with his camera.

The second book is called “Mechanica”. It was written and illustrated  by Lance Balchin. This book has an important message that we need to take better care of our world.

Have you read any of these books? Do you think one of them will be chosen as “Book of the Year?” Let us know in the comments section!

Book Week

This year Erin and I (Library Monitors) will organise a vote to see which picture story book the students at St Charles Borromeo think is the best. It will be interesting to see whether it will be the same as the one that the Children Books Council of Australia will select.

Over the next few weeks, we will present to you all of the picture story books have been nominated. Let us know what you think.
