November 2010

November was a busy month for 'Mrs Echidna', visiting schools in and around Brisbane.  Every class is different, and I learn as much from the experience as the children do!

Friday 3rd December 2010
The iconic Patchwork Angel at Forest Glen has a Christmas Celebration on Friday 3rd December, and Betty Johnston will be their guest speaker for the event.
It's Book Week at the end of August, and that makes a busy time for Mrs Echidna's Dilemma at various centres in the Brisbane region.
Read the book review on 'Mrs Echidna's Dilemma' in the July 2010 edition of 'Puggle Post' - the online magazine devoted to Echidna research and care.
Thursday 1st July 2010
Cooroy has a new Library, and 'Mrs Echidna' was there during the winter school holidays!
25-26 June 2010
'Mrs Echidna' went to the Brisbane Textile Art Festival, which was held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre at South Bank from Friday 25th June until Sunday 27th June.
Betty is available to visit early childhood centres [schools, kindergartens and child care centres] and Libraries, to read her book, and to talk to the children about how it was made.
11-13 June 2010
Betty displayed her quilts and books at the local Caboolture District Show from 11-13 June 2010.

What a dilemma Mrs. Echidna did have and I congratulate most sincerely in the way you have portrayed this through your craft and journalistic skills...I am a "crafty" person with many patchwork quilts under my belt...and gave your book... to our grand children in US.

I would like to thank Betty for presenting at our Book Week Family Night. The school community enjoyed hearing about the process an author goes through to produce and have a book published. Students are still asking for and enjoying Mrs Echidna's Dilemma.
We love 'Mrs Echidna's Dilemma'.  Your art is amazing!  We had a very good time and we hope you did too.  Thankyou for the puppets and for coming.

Betty has presented literacy workshops to Under-Graduate and Graduate students in Early and Primary Years at the University of the Sunshine Coast...  She is a very talented and passionate educator, and I recommend her highly to school principals, parent's groups, and anyone interested in furthering the power of language, literacy and literature in classrooms.
