On Wed 17th November, the Ration Shed Museum hosted the launch of the new Budburra Books release “Where’s Nana?”.
The artwork for “Where’s Nana?” was created in a collaborative workshop with students from Cherbourg State School, Murgon State School and St Josephs Primary School (also hosted by the Ration Shed back in May).
All the participating students were invited back to the launch, and were thrilled to see their finished work, when it was read to a captive audience by two Cherbourg State School students.
The students were all gifted a copy of the book to take home with them, and each school received a class set.
The day also saw the premiere of two new films: “Budburra Books: a Cherbourg Literacy Project,” which shows the journey of the creation of the books over the last 3 years, and the movie adaptation of the Budburra’s Alphabet book, again starring students of all 3 schools. There were a lot of laughs!
Books and films are available for sale at the Ration Shed, or via the order form at http://www.budburrabooks.com.au/
