My last day in Shanghai on Wednesday this week was just fabulous! Delightful fellow-Aussie Tania McPhillamy was my teacher librarian host, and looked after me brilliantly, as I met all of primary, from Year 1 right up the Year 6! It was wonderful to have the chance to introduce them to my Chinese Calendar Tale characters, with story readings, Chinese history and folklore galore, and there were a lot of clever questions too! I look forward to receiving lots of entries from you all in my Shaggy Sheep Poetry Competition! Photos to come!

A big warm hello to the fantastic staff and children at Montessori School Beijing, where I spent a very busy, very happy day on Monday this week! We read stories all day, with the kindy kids meeting Chester Choi, the Grade 1s meeting Pin Yin Panda and the Grade 2s meeting Rodney Ram! I had a ball! Huge thanks to Head of English Wesley Morris for hosting, and to the terrific staff for making me feel so welcome! I’ll see you all next year!

On Saturday 14, I met my good friends at Starbugs, the after-school club teaching local Shanghai kids¬† to read English by reading great English language stories, in two fun sessions in Puxi and Pudong! We had a hugely enthusiastic audience of kids, mums and dads, whose English was SO much better than my Chinese! As always, it was fabulous to meet you all, and big thanks especially to owner Qing Yang and the fabulous Zoe Zhang for hosting the events! I’ll see you all again next year!
