festival of children’s literature

30 March 2019

Georgia Heard

Our Poet In Residence

Georgia Heard, a well-known poet and educator, mentored our aspiring poets at ELC during ‘The Festival of Children’s Literature’.  There were poetry readings, and installations where everyone was welcome to try their hand at reading, and/or writing poetry.

Reading is at the very heart of education, and the benefits of it to a young child cannot be overstated: it opens the door to academic success, imparts a love of learning, promotes maturity, increases discipline, influences morality, sparks curiosity – and satisfies it.

All children, parents and grandparents are invited to come together with us for this month-long celebration of the written word – and elves, wizards, goblins, fairies, and any other non-earthly creatures are also welcome. Whatever the medium, whether a sand drawing from Australia, a totem pole from Canada, a  water puppet from Vietnam, or a shadow puppet from Thailand, everyone, everywhere, has a story to tell.
