Wenda recently visited our school to share her beautiful picture storybooks with our Year 1, 2 and 3 classes. The students were delighted to hear Wenda’s animated reading of her books, complete with props to encourage imaginative contributions from the audience and even an adorable (and very realistic!) puppet dog. They were also fascinated to be able to ask a real author the hows and whys of writing a book.
“Backyard Magic” and “Eva’s Imagination” are beautiful stories of play and imagination that the younger children could relate to. “The Last Seaweed Pie” was perfect for older students who are developing their awareness of environmental issues. And book lovers of all ages can enjoy the bright and lively “One Book Was All It Took”.
Wenda’s joy in sharing stories with children was evident as she interacted with them in a warm, fun and lively manner that they responded wonderfully to. I would definitely recommend Wenda for a visit with lower Primary students!

Wenda came to visit us at C&K Coorparoo Community Kindergarten and read 2 of her books! “Eva’s Imagination” and “Backyard Magic” are both beautifully illustrated picture books, enjoyable to read and help extend children’s love of literature and enhance their imagination. Wenda engaged the children with the illustrations after Eva’s Imagination, asking questions and helping them link and make sense of what is meant by the word Imagination. The children then loved spotting the bird on each of the pages in Backyard Magic. They were delighted when a little bird appeared and then hid behind Wenda at the end of the story reading!
