Much excitement here today. Seven sets of the books have arrived and the bags with your lovely note. We will now plan our little events for the families and children in the near future.
As with the first set of books people are very joyful about the range of subjects and the quality of the board books. They are so colourful and sturdy, bold and beautiful.
Such a joyous sharing ahead for some little children and their families here.
It must give you such a buzz to see the happiness created by your efforts.
Will be in touch.
Thanks from Little Yuin.
BOOK BUZZ ONE KIT 2011
A big thank you from families at Little Yuin Pre-School and the community for the beautiful book packs. They were distributed at our Book Buzz celebration which we held at Liitle Yuin last Tuesday.
This time we invited families with Kinder children from Narooma Public School and celebrated the Year of Reading with story time and book buddies.
We have made a good link with the Narooma Public School and Bermagui Public School where most of the children enter school. In response to the Book Buzz gift of books Narooma Primary have now registered the school to hold a Great Book Swap on Indigenous Literacy Day in September.
“We consider the work you do as imperative in assisting to closing the gap. ILF helps correct inequity by assisting to remove barriers around cost and accessibility of obtaining books. Catering specifically to Aboriginal people enhances their engagement also.”
