Raising Literacy Australia (RLA) is a not-for-profit organisation committed to enriching children’s lives through literacy. They promote and help to develop early childhood literacy right across Australia by supporting families to read, talk, play, and sing with their children from birth through universal and targeted programs.
So I was thrilled when they chose 'A Stick and a Stone' as their featured book for preschoolers for January 2022.
They said 'A Stick and a Stone' is a joyous celebration of getting a lot out of the natural environment whilst being with families and friends. Whilst exploring the great outdoors these friends discover a wide variety of treasures and overcome a tricky problem. Utilising the resources at hand, working together, enjoying nature and being together are all key themes of this beautifully illustrated book.'
