The library opened its doors to students this week with exciting scavenger hunts for the upper primary and book mark making for the lower primary. I read the book "The shelf elf" by Jackie Hopkins where Skoob teaches the children about book care and proper library behaviour. We celebrate Australia today with a display of books written by Australian authors.
An excellent Caldecott winner picture book to accompany natural disasters, weather, and character curriculum - an unforgettable story of one man's simple sacrifice that saved hundreds of lives.
The Real Ojisan The character of Ojiisan is based on a real person, Hamaguchi Goryou, who guided his villagers to safety by lighting rice-straw fires. To learn more about this great man, visit the website of the Japanese museum dedicated to him: http://www.town.hirogawa.wakayama.jp/
