Celebrate Book Week with Matt Cosgrove (Available for a limited time 9 Sept 2023) (Early Stage 1, Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3)
Join best-selling author / illustrator Matt Cosgrove as we celebrate Book Week! Matt will read Macca the Backpacker and Dharma the Llama, as well as engage in a drawing session with students.
Students will have the opportunity to hear Matt read not one but two of his amazing books from the Macca the Alpaca and Dharma the Llama series. Through these picture books, students will connect and reflect on Macca’s positive outlook and Dharma’s love of reading. Matt will lead a short drawing activity to help students on their way to creating their very own picture book. Students will also gain an insight into Matt’s writing / illustrating process, being a published author and a sneak peek at his new books!
