Today we read "A Home For Bilby" by Joanne Crawford and illustrated by Grace Fielding.

It is the story of a frightened little Bilby who is looking for a new home and finds one with the help of the other animals.

The boys were very interested in the beautiful illustrations and commented on the dot and line art and the colours used to convey the texture of the animal's fur or feathers and the environment in which each of the animals lived.

After reading the story we discussed the different homes that each of the animals had and what we could do to help protect them.

We then recreated the story using our plush bilbies by trying to find the perfect home for them in our own backyard.
