Visit to meet book illustrator Joelle Avelino

A group of year 2 and 3 children from our school took part in an event with picture book illustrator Joelle Avelino. The children had the opportunity to listen to the story "Mama's sleeping scarf" written by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and learnt how Joelle Avelino found her inspiration and created the book's drawings. Our children were very fortunate to witness the drawing process of the book's main character and to draw it themselves by following Joelle's step by step instructions. What an exciting and rewarding experience!
