  1. Reblogged this on Early Years CPD Barefoot Books and commented:
    At Early Years CPD Barefoot Books we continually stress the importance of sharing stories as way of connecting with families and communities to support children’s literacy. Lovely to hear how others around the world are doing the same.


  2. The teachers at Waipahihi school, Taupo NZ had a book giving day today, Fed 13th. Each teacher that wanted to be involved put their book interests on a piece of paper we then randomly drew names out of a hat. At morning tea this morning we each gave our books, new and old, to their new owners. It was great.


  3. We are all very busy indeed! I am preparing a small ebook to put online on my website and an “ABC book” with a 4th year class during my English as a second language lessons. For more information about this project I wrote a post on my facebook page at We are almost done: still the letters E, V and Z to go and the book will be finished for International Book Giving Day!


      1. Actually, we finished today also letters E, V and Z! Just on time! We gave the book to the school’s library but I am digitalizing the pages so that I can also make a digital book.
