Bookish Play Friday | Hunwick's Egg by Mem Fox. We adore Hunwick! Hunwick is a dear little Bilby that lives in the Australian desert. A horrific storm hits his home turning his world upside down. After the storm passes, Hunwick finds a beautiful egg. He loves his egg. His egg is his very best friend. .
.
It does not hatch though.
.
.
All the animals start talking, how strange that little egg is. Hunwick does not care he loves it anyway. No matter what. Besides, Hunwick knows the eggs secret. Do you?
.
.
We made Hunwick's eggs with perfectly egg shaped stones of our own. A Google search and a quick egg study convinced Archie that our eggs should have yellow and black speckled spots. I taught him how to flick a toothbrush, just right so it sprays little spots. He also decided his little pointer finger should swish, swish just enough paint on top. We love our eggs. We think they are perfect just like Hunwick's.

Make sure you check out my clever friend and the book play fun the have been having for #bookishplay Friday!

"What journeys we have travelled,
from countries near and far!
Together now, we live in peace,
beneath the Southern Star" - Mem Fox, 'I'm Australian Too' ✨

Inspired by the plight of immigrants around the world, Mem Fox was moved to write this poignant picture book to celebrate how all our lives are enriched by the vibrant cultural diversity immigrants bring to their new communities 🌏🎉 Readers everywhere will see themselves—and their friends and neighbours—in this powerful and moving picture book, illustrated beautifully by Ronojoy Ghosh 🖌

A timely and important read this World Refugee Day 💚📗 #newleavesloves #memfox #imaustraliantoo #worldrefugeeday

Our last week of the term is fast approaching and the theme will be a colourful one! 'A world of Colour' will include green sheep, pegs, paint and ice! The Stay and Play tribe will be sent in search for natural treasures in the bush to observe different colours we can find in the world around us. We will soon be taking bookings for Term 3...watch this space! 🌿🍂🌺

This book my #Memfox has made my day 😂 #sotrue #parenting #gotheftosleep

“Koala Lou” by one of our favorite authors Mem Fox tells the story of a young koala who longs for her mother's approval and words of love. Since her mother is so busy with her younger siblings, she now rarely says I love you to her so Koala Lou trained and joined a contest for her to be noticed again.
This story serves as a reminder to me that our children continuously need our attention and affirmation. So despite the business of our days, don't let a day pass by without saying "I love you" to our kids.
Have you already said I love you to your kids today? If not, now is a good time. 💕👧🏽💕 #inspiredandintentionalliving

Yay ! Exploring the magic of my childhood, humbled to be brought on board by @monkeybaatheatreco as part of the principle creative team bringing Mem Fox and Julie Vivas iconic Australian children’s book “Possum Magic” to the stage ! This week we commenced early R&D sessions. A terrific team of creatives, looking forward to making lots of magic.

"But the next baby born was truly divine, a sweet little child who was mine, all mine. And this little baby, as everyone knows, has ten little fingers, ten little toes, and three little kisses on the tip of its nose."

👆 This Mem Fox classic is easily one of my favourite books to read to my little one. What are the favs in your family?

Three weeks ago I asked Em to have a crack at reading a beloved Mahony classic, Mem Fox’s ‘Where is the Green Sheep?’ He gave it a solid crack but clearly wasn’t quite ready. Tonight, he read this to me fluently and confidently and by the end we were both beaming!! He immediately said ‘should I read this to Daddy too?’ and you can bet your bottom dollar that was a huge ‘Hell yes!’ 👊🏼📚👏🏼 Big brother helped with lighting and big sister was also there sitting quietly beside me. Emmett read us all this fantastic book and he’s gone to bed feeling smart, capable and adored: priceless 😍 Swipe ◀️ to watch the videos (I didn’t include the whole thing, just the highlights...including the adorable and apt whispered conclusion 😊) #read #readforfun #memfox #whereisthegreensheep #fyos #prep #familystory #myfam

M E M O R Y B O X E S ! 💭✨ In History the Pre-primaries have been learning about special events and things from the past. We read the story ‘Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge’ written by Mem Fox and created our own memory boxes that the kids have taken home to full with special memories from the past. They are going to be presenting their memory boxes as their news topic this week. We used pasta to decorate the top of the boxes and the kids had to create a pattern. I then sprayed painted them gold and silver to make them extra special and magical! ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #history #preprimary #hass #past #memorybox #memories #wilfredgordonmcdonaldpartridge #memfox #australianauthors #aussieteachertribe #perthteacher #earlychildhoodeducation #earlyyears #handsonlearning #memoriesfromthepast #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #iteachtoo

2018🔹One of our bedtime story books a few nights ago. It reminded me of a conversation we were having about ethnicity with Junot. We were saying that he’s probably mostly Filipino-Chinese and then I asked him so when someone asked what your ethnicity is, what do you say? He answered without hesitation, “French.” 😳 😜He’s been very interested in trying to learn French so that we can go to Paris and look for a French toy store. Whatever motivates him to learn is fine with me. #memfox #whoeveryouare #readingisgood #keeplearning #motivation #kids #duolingo #theprojectfingers

We are loving our new Mem Fox book. A clever take on the popular nursery rhyme ‘The 5 Little Ducks’. After reading it I set up a simple number recognition and matching activity using our wooden blocks, some Playdoh pots and pop sticks. #memfox #readingtokids #5littleducks #earlyreading

Thanks for the thoughts and tips on beating tonsillitis! I think I did it! And I’m back at my desk enjoying the first stage of a new book with #memfox and @penguinkidsaustralia called The Little Star. It’s instantly feeling like my sort of book.
