Storytime at Home
with Fiona the Storyteller
For far too long, koalas have been called bears. Bears live in cottages in the woods, eat porridge or bamboo, have picnics and … wear pants! This koala is not happy about it. He is out to prove that he is BARE not A BEAR. And the bears had better not get in his way!
Join Fiona as she reads Koala Bare by Jackie French; a wonderful and very funny look at the differences between koalas and bears. Beautifully illustrated by Matt Shanks. Published by Harper Collins.
In Koala Bare we see bears enjoying a picnic (until Koala Bare turns up, anyway!). For our Storytime Activity, Fiona will be hosting her very own Teddy Bears’ Picnic. Perhaps you can have a picnic at home?
