Mother’s Day Book Club in Monash’s Children Cancer Centre

We had a very special book club session on the 11th of May at KOALA Kids Book Club with Elizabeth, age 2 and Stefan, aged 7. It was a themed book club for Mother’s Day.

Elizabeth loved ‘My Mum’s the Best’ by Rosie Smith and Bruce Whatley and ‘Hey Mum, I Love you, by Corinne Fenton. Stefan enjoyed reading ‘Mummy’s Little Monster’ by Dawn McNiff & Kate Willis Crowley. He also loved the classic ‘Owl Babies’ by Martin Waddell and Patrick Benson. We also enjoyed ‘My Mum says the Strangest Things’ by Katrina Germein and Tom Jellett and ‘Little Penguin and his Mum’ by Matt Wolf. But by far Stefan’s favourite was ‘Mummy’s Little Monster’ which all made sense when we found out his favourite animals were snakes and sharks! When then did some beautiful artwork of portraits of the children’s Mum’s from the wonderful Five Mile Press Sketchpads. A beautiful morning was had by all.
