Activities for Book Week are Coming!

A quick message to let you know that activities will begin appearing in the coming week for books nominated in the Short List for Book Week 2016 - Australia: Story Country. I have found this year it has been more difficult to track down the books but have managed to get hold of more of the older reader books this year so there will be activities for them too. I have almost finished collecting activities for:
* Suri's Wall
* Ride, Ricardo, Ride!
* Freedom Ride

And a few others I am currently working on. Keep an eye out - Book Week is next month!
