Remember making these when you were a kid? I do – and also the angst about what ‘clever’ actions to write inside! This is a Chatterbox created by our Australian Children’s Laureate, Ursula Dubosarsky and her fabulous team. It’s available on the resources section of the Laureate website. and sends clear messages about reading.

Must admit it took me longer to make than when I was in primary school but once I got going no one was safe! I think we used to call it a fortune teller ( though I was called a chatterbox in my school reports!).

Ursula’s message is to get Children to Read and to join their Library! What a wonderful ambassador. There are heaps of other tools on the website so take advantage of them.

Ursula will be in Hobart next week to talk to children and library staff. I’ve asked if I can gatecrash so we can have a quick in person catch up. Fingers crossed!
