Hairy Nosed Day is on the 11th of May each year.
HarperCollins Publishers and the Wombat Foundation hosted a Virtual Author Session today to celebrate the Hairy Noses. Students from James Erskine Public School, Hastings Public School, Tallygarropna Primary School, Jindivick Primary School, Lakelands Public School and Mussellbrook Public School joined in wearing their whiskers
Jacqui Mills from the Wombat Foundation spoke about the work and research and shared the plight of the Hairy Noses. The students shared a reading from Jackie French’s new charmingly humorous picture book about the endangered hairy nose wombat and their search for a new home.
The Hairy Nosed Wombats Find a New Home by Jackie French beautifully illustrated by Sue deGennaro.
A wonderful review from teacher librarian Barbara Branxton. http://thebottomshelf.edublogs.org/
