This week we have read many of the picture story books shortlisted by the Children’s Book Council. Ee found them all very diverse and interesting. The themes ranged from refugees coming into Australia and finding a peaceful way of life as in the story ‘Out’, environmental issues that impact negatively on our environment as in ‘Mechanica’ and family outings as in ‘Rain’ and finally being creative and building fun projects by reusing and recycling house-hold goods as in the story, ‘The Patchwork Bike’.
Here are some of our Patchwork Bike designs by using common house-hold items. We think they are very original. Let us know what you think.
Here is our mural and artistic responses to Mechanica.
