Event Overview: Taronga Zoo and Literature Live! have joined forces to present exciting, educational workshops that combine two great Australian loves: animals and books.
These unique sessions are designed to excite and inspire children about the wide range of Aussie animals we have, about the environment and protection of species, and about reading books and learning.
All sessions will be held at Taronga Zoo (Sydney) and will feature Aleesah Darlison, children��s author, and a Zoo Educator, PLUS some very special live animal guests!
Aleesah will talk about her childhood growing up in the country where she learned to love animals. She will also reveal the inspiration behind her book, Puggle��s Problem, a story about a baby echidna. Aleesah will show amazing puggle video footage and read Puggle��s Problem.
The Zoo Education Officer will introduce some amazing live Australian animals. Students will have time to interact and ask questions throughout. These workshops foster education and a love of animals and books and are perfectly suited to the Curriculum.
