ACT Chief Minister's Reading Ambassadors  Sessions 2019

Tracey Hawkins-

Franklin Early Childhood School and the Canberra Hospital School

Tracey Hawkins visited Franklin Early Childhood School on 30 July and the Canberra Hospital School on 8 August, sharing her latest book Leaping Lola (illustrated by Anil Tortop) and several of her other books including Max Meets a Monster (illustrated by Chantal Stewart) and Nancy Bentley (illustrated by Jacqui Grantford).

 

Tracey explained the process of researching, writing, editing, working with an illustrator and publishing a book. She talked about where her ideas for her books come from and encouraged the students to write their own books. The students and teachers had lots of questions which they were lucky to have Tracey answer.
