In a combined celebration of Book Week (August 17 - 24) and Science Week, Griffith City Library held a very special Storytime which explored rhyme, lies, and challenges.
Library Assistant Kate Crosato, with the aid of work experience student Hayden Pope, read out Mulga Bill's Bicycle, by Banjo Paterson, This Is a Ball by Beck Stanton and Matt Stanton, and The Wrong Book, by Nick Bland.
The third book, and by far the favourite among the children, was This Is a Ball by Beck Stanton and Matt Stanton, which forces parents to read out-right lies to their children.
After reading the first line, ‘This is a ball’ (which was accompanied by a picture of a cube), little Archer Foskett yelled out, “The writing’s telling lies!”
Afterwards, the children were invited to build their own solar system using cardboard, paper, crayons, and yarn.
