Reading Challenge

Published September 2, 2012 by electricbluegaloo

So how has your 2012 National Year of Reading Challenge going?

Mine is, well, stuck at the gate. Not because I couldn’t face the wide open horizons, but because I have been flat out teaching the mechanics of reading to the most adorable 6 yr olds you could imagine.

However, this afternoon I begged myself an hour and headed down to the local library and discovered a small treasure-trove of books that meet my criteria: YA and children’s books written by indigenous Australians. I am particularly looking forward to My Girragundji by Meme McDonald and Boori Monty Pryor after reading this fabulous article by Judith Ridge Stories to Make Mountains Start Breathing. Now all I need is a couple of hours to read the books I’ve borrowed 🙂
