More Book Club Feedback

'It has inspired our school literacy team'

Through my membership in the Book Club this year, I have seen firsthand Andrea’s extensive knowledge of curriculum areas of how students learn. It has provided me with an in-depth study of popular and engaging texts for students of all ages and has inspired our school literacy team to develop our own book studies.

'I can’t wait for book club to roll around each month'

Book club has reinspired my love of all children’s literature. You have at your fingertips ideas that can be transferred to any book you pick up or any learning area investigated. I adore learning that connects across multi disciplines. I can’t wait for book club to roll around each month. Thanks Andrea, for being that educator that touches our souls with your passion for learning.

– Kim Carey, Acting Principal

'A happy parcel in my inbox each month!'

Book Club with Andrea is like a happy parcel in my inbox each month! Andrea delivers, not only rich learning tasks right across the curriculum to suit any year level, she also includes short videos that capture snippets of her thinking and connections to the text. This has helped me grow as a teacher and supported me in developing my own learning sequences. Andrea’s ability to authentically match learning to picture story books is to be admired!
