Congratulations to Morris Gleitzman, one of the iCentre’s favourite authors, who has been announced as the Australian Children’s Laureate for 2018-12019. The theme for his two-year term will be Stories Make Us – Stories Create Our Future.
The Stories Make Us calendar, created by Morris and illustrated by Andrew Weldon, is a fun project for everyone, and a different theme for every month will inspire your story adventures. Print out the calendar and use it to enjoy and share stories throughout the year.
“Young people need stories more than ever,” Morris says. “Stories to delight, stories to beguile, stories to inspire, stories to move deeply. And through these experiences, stories that equip young readers to embrace an often dark and uncertain world with optimism, resolve and creativity.”
