Members of the Book Club meet each Tuesday at recess, share some food and talk about enjoyable books. This week there was a special task – selecting titles from two big tubs delivered to our library by the wonderful staff at Warrnambool Books. Lots of impromptu reading (Mopoke by Philip Bunting) – and just like Leo, aged 3, whose comment appears on the landing page at the end of the web link, Lachlan laughed and said: “rude word”. Jarrod gave us a mellifluous rendition of That’s NOT a Hippopotamus! – a very funny book from a New Zealand publisher. Zoe was critical of Mem Fox’s latest title: I’m Australian Too as she felt that the people in the story were stereotyped too much. What do other readers think?
Liam was delighted to have chosen the newest of the Star Wars books – a beautifully illustrated guide based on the latest movie, released in mid December last year. He was delighted to have it processed and delivered to him in class this afternoon.
This club is taking on a life of its own and developing a group personality which is delightful. Members should be congratulated on their inclusive approach to meetings and their shared leadership model.
