  • An Unexpected Author Visit

    Jay-Jays name

    During a recent weeks visit to a school with Year 6, I was able to fill a few gaps with snippets of information about buses, books and rain-sticks. This got the children’s attention and they asked questions and listen to my tales.

  • Writing a Newspaper Report

    I am constantly surprised at the children’s curiosity and interest in the Playbus and how much pleasure it still brings even though it is now only in book form. The children are as fascinated as ever about the Fact as well as the Fiction.
