Storytelling at Melbourne Montessori

Don't trust spiders!", was the advice from one student at Melbourne Montessori School last month.
What an absolute pleasure storytelling at Melbourne Montessori. Thank you everyone for such a fabulous warm welcome and for your support.

School Holiday Fun

What a hoot and an absolute pleasure to be invited to tell stories in Wonthaggi, Williams Landing and Cowes during the July school holidays.

I’m not sure who had more fun, me or the kids?

Peanut Monkey™ featured in the list of tales told, along with other entertaining yarns.

And then we did craft activities, from sock puppets to cut and paste and drawing - everyone allowed their imaginations and creativity to flow.

Storytelling in Cambodia

A local teacher from Gippsland, Sigrid Jeffery, took copies of Peanut Monkey books to Stepping Stones school in Cambodia, where she regularly volunteers during her holidays.

Stepping Stones is based in Kok Thnot, near Siem Reap and provides free high quality education and also improves access to healthcare facilities.

Go to the Stepping Stones website to find out more about their projects.

What an honour! Thank you Sigrid.


Book Week Stories

Back in the driving seat so to speak...

After a long time finding my feet, and now with the imminent release of my new Children's Book, and a fabulous team of friends pushing me to get out there, I took the opportunity to read at a local primary school.

Thank you Newhaven Primary School for your enthusiasm and for having me to read stories on Wednesday during Book Week. Your students are engaging and clever.

I read one of my kids' favourite stories, Wonky Donkey. They especially love when I do funny voices. As well as Peanut Monkey of course!
