Books in Homes Taking 1 Million Books to Kids

Books in Homes Taking 1 Million Books to Kids

Hokey pokey published Scholastic AustraliaLove the committee meetings where we select great books for disadvantaged and indigenous kids across Western Sydney, the Outback Northern Territory.

Andrew Berhut MD of Scholastic singing Hokey Pokey in tune with a new title was hilarious. Hokey Pokey is on the list of books that children can chose for their very own. Andrew really supports his books!

Gillian Maugle represents school librarians on the committee and is fabulous.

As a Role Model I’ll be presenting at the Assembly for Books in Homes, to Curran Public School Macquarie Fields in Western Sydney on 18th June – looking forward to it.

SCBWI – Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators Australia east and New Zealand is proud to support Book in Homes.

I'm a writer committed to kids in particular. Adults are good too. Want to bring hope through story to my readers. Awarded an Order of Australia, Lady Cutler Award and a Lifetime International Award for Literacy for my body of work, spreading literacy is really important. I'm head of SCBWI Australia East & New Zealand, patron of Monkey Baa Theatre, Ambassador for the Premier's Reading Challenge, Writer Ambassador for Room to Read ... among other roles. I also love heritage and adapting to enhance the lives of people today, which is why I restored The Hughenden Hotel 1870s and The Residences Centennial Park - the only homes in the parklands which are open now for accommodation, events and lots of nature.
