Under Fives Literary Event

On Wednesday 18th April 2012, the Illawarra-South Coast Branch of the CBCA hosted an Under Fives Literary Event for local Indigenous children aged 3-5 years. It was a fun morning of literacy with the theme of "Bear and Chook" and "Bear and Chook by the Sea" by Lisa Shannahan. The children enjoyed book readings by CBCA members, bear and chook craft activities, 'warm honey toast' and special guest appearances by Bear and Chook themselves. The CBCA branch also donated a selection of children's picture books to 'Noogaleek' Children's Centre.
