Book Club in May was all about Mothers
KOALA Kids’ volunteers Carly Velik and Grace Kerr worked the Royal Children’s Hospital Education Institute’s early learning educator Sonja Fea to facilitate a gorgeous Mother’s Day book club for the kids in the Kookaburra Ward at The Royal Children’s Hospital. We all enjoyed the lovely warm stories about mothers and their babies, the human and fuzzy ones, before the kids made and decorated their own Mother’s Day bags in which to hide their gifts in. Callum and Logan got creative with their bags, and had to make sure mum wasn’t peaking at it during the session.
Warmest thanks to Hinkler, Lake Press and Scholastic Australia for their generous donations to KOALA Kids mother’s day libraries, available for families to enjoy for the month of May.
