"A very valuable day. So many practical ideas which can be used at all levels. Fun and worthwhile."

"Once again, I have attended a PD at The Literature Centre and found the day informative, inspiring and rewarding. I can't wait to get back to school to explore some of the ideas presented. The presenter's enthusiasm is contagious and her knowledge inspiring. A most enjoyable and rewarding day." 

"Huge knowledge of the books presented and available. It is great being made aware of picture books for upper and middle years – not just the general or lower years."

"So great to be immersed in the world of picture story books presented by informed, passionate educators. So much to take away from the day. Inspired to go even more deeply than I do now with picture story books with my students. This has changed my view (and practice) again for the better. Thank you."

"Thank you. Great day, lots of ideas and different ways of looking at familiar works. Thank you for sharing your passion and making events at the centre always unique."

"Approachable staff, very organised, extremely knowledgeable and passionate staff."
