KOALA Kids Cricket Themed Book Club

It was a busy morning at the KOALA Kids Cricket themed Book Club at RCH
on Monday 2nd February.

With excerpts read from chapters of the ‘Kaboom Kid¹ written by J.S Black
and Australian cricket star David Warner, and T20 Melbourne Star, Glenn
Maxwell¹s ‘Lucky Break’ by Patrick Loughlin, the children were regaled
with action packed stories of friendship, adventure and cricketing
prowess.

This was followed by a reading from Neridah McMullin’s new
picture book ‘Knockabout Cricket’. It’s a true Australian history story
about the legendary Aboriginal cricketer, Johnny Mullagh. With beautiful, vibrant illustrations for the children to enjoy they also learnt some interesting facts along the way. The children were then engaged by Grace Kerr and Neridah McMullin in a ‘Design your own cricket ball or bat activity’ which was loads of fun and the children came up with some innovative and smashing designs.
