The 2013 Bookworm Literary Festival will feature several writers, illustrators, and scholars from the world of children’s and young adult literature. Our friends at The Bookworm asked their experts for some top picks.
Australian Children’s Laureate Alison Lester will be hosting a writing and illustrating workshop for kids on Tuesday, March 19, 10am, as part of BLF 2013. She encourages children to be proud of their differences with imaginary worlds and everyday life settings.
For young readers:
Peepo by Janet and Allen Ahlberg
Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
Doctor de Soto by William Steig
No Kiss for Mother by Tomi Ungerer
Tickets for Alison’s BLF workshop are currently on sale at the Bookworm.
