A Party with a Purpose: sharing Poems and Picture-Books; practicing public speaking; partaking in portions of science that are enjoyably palatable! These are some of the ingredients in a Picture-Book Poetry Party.
“We’re giving family audiences enjoyable free entertainment, where they learn some science almost by accident, providing participating students with unique high-achieving opportunities plus, it’s a wonderful way to befriend and showcase other fabulous children’s authors from our region.”
This year’s star is Deanna Henderson of Minibeast Wildlife fame. She will be reading her Picture-Book “There’s a Zoo in my Backyard” and sharing some of her writing journey. This will be the fifth annual Poetry Party hosted by Science Rhymes poet Celia Berrell.
Celia’s Poetry Parties were inspired by a SCBWI suggestion of encouraging children’s authors and illustrators to accomplish projects together. Her first feature authors – Diane Finlay, Jacque Duffy and Trudie Trewin – were all fellow SCBWI members.
“It helps us to promote ourselves, our books and the SCBWI profile within our region” adds Celia.
