  •   As part of book week celebrations, Dr Rosemary Selkirk visited our school library and shared a special time with our prep to year 2 students. Dr Selkirk read her beautifully written and illustrated book "Are you afraid of Monsters?" and easily kept all the children entertained and attentive, asked questions, had the children dancing a monster dance as well as designing and drawing their own monsters! It was a very happy morning enjoyed by everyone. Dr Selkirk is a warm, wonderful, informative and entertaining guest speaker. We would all love to have her visit again with her next book.

  •   The introduction before the story was a great way to engage the students and get their knowledge ready about the content of the story. They enjoyed acting out the monster dances. Discussion after the story indicated the children’s understanding of the text. They loved the follow-up activity and making their own masks. Prep teacher, Thomastown Primary School, Thomastown, Victoria

  •   We learned about imagination. We talked about where we find imagination and what it feels like. Sometimes we can feel scared and sometimes we can feel excited when we imagine things. When we get frightened, it can be at night when we can’t see very well. We can use our imagination to write creative stories. It can be fun to use our imagination. Yr2A, Trinity Anglican School, Kewarra Beach, Queensland.

  •   Our Foundation students loved their visit from Dr Selkirk. Rosemary had a lovely manner and the children hung on her every word. The session was engaging for the children including dancing, stories and even making their own monsters. We hope the children have received the message that monsters are only in their imaginations!

  •   Thank you so much for visiting our college. Your visit was the perfect addition to our Book Week celebrations . Your additional activities were also well thought out and prepared. The dance routine was fun and simple and children were well engaged. The drawing activity allowed students to continue the story using their own imaginations which added to the 'monster' fun.

  •   I read the book to children in a school with troubled kids and I used it as part of an art lesson on imaginary creatures and monsters. Great messages in there for kids with worries - all about talking about it and sharing and it becomes not scary. Relief Teacher, Tasmania

  •   We had Author Rosemary Selkirk visit our Library, it was a lovely session where she described imagination and monsters. The audience of Preps really enjoyed it, especially the opportunity to do a monster dance. It was great to see how involved the children were in the whole session, their imagination was really engaged. Reading Coordinator, Thomastown Library, Yarra Plenty Regional Library, Victoria

  •   Feedback from the teachers was really positive in all three classes. "Super" - and that from a French person is a real compliment not often given.  For me, I really, really liked it...I found the activities well structured and sequenced, and liked how you adapted to each age level. Good variety of movement (dance), listening, sharing, drawing, sharing. Very good idea to have the French teacher read the page after you, so all children understood. So, again, thank you so very much.  We all really, really enjoyed it.  Head of Preschool, Lennen Bilingual School, Paris

  •   A wonderful story that explores kids imagination... my four year old received the book as a gift from her Nan. She could easily identify with all aspects of the book from going out with Nan for a babyccino to chatting with her about her fears. The illustrations are lovely and the print is great for pointing out simple words for her to identify in the text. Candace, Brighton

  •   Verbal feedback was very positive: certainly for year 1 and prep. They loved drawing their monsters and I think it was a good way to externalise potential fears. I think the ELC children didn’t really “get” the story but they are a very young bunch this year. Many thanks. Middle School/Junior School Teacher Librarian, Bostock House, Geelong, Victoria
