One World, Many Stories
By Gabrielle Karsai
Gaby from Parramatta has sent in this wonderful display linking stories to the world. Click on the picture to enlarge it and get a better view.
'We’ve been moving into a new library and I’ve finally been able to have my first display which is for Children’s Book Week. The theme is “One World, many stories”. I’ve photocopied covers of books in the collection and then linked them on a world map to the place where they are set. I also asked for teachers to lend us some globes: as you can see I received some beauties! We are also running a quiz, where the girls have to answer questions regarding countries (real and imaginary) in different books. Example: In what city does Clary Fray meet werewolves, demons and shadowhunters? (Answer: New York)".
I really like the idea of incorporating a quiz linked to this display.
