We are writing the 2014 Teaching Resource in instalments. The first five exhibitors have their teaching resource already in the book. From 20th February the next five exhibitors will have theirs added. The final five will be added on 20th March. We have two extra exhibitors who are also joining us and we'll slot theirs in once they join the exhibit. So please do keep coming to this site and download the next instalment.
We are also going to include advertisements from companies that are book/school minded. For example, New Holland Publishers, Scholastic, South Pacific Books, and Duck Creek Press - showcasing their latest books. Plus Rosemary Tisdall's speaker agency 'Getting Kids into Books'.
If you would like to advertise in our teaching resource please contact mariagill at ihug.co.nz. The rates are very reasonable and it will be seen by teachers and librarians from schools all around New Zealand.
The advertisement fees pay for our excellent designer to design the teaching resource and creates funds so we can host the Gala evening on Friday 28th March at the National Library. We'll have more information about the Gala night soon.
The first five fabulous exhibits have now been erected at the National Library in Parnell, Auckland. When you go up the lift and the door swings open - you can see our exhibition right in front of you. Three are in glass cabinets and two are on the wall shelving. Here they are in their glory:
Maria Gill with 'The Last of Maui's Dolphins' display
Lorraine Orman with 'Touchstone's' display
Heather Arnold's book 'Draw NZ Birds' display
Melinda Szymanik's book 'While you are sleeping' display
Julie Scott with her books The Chitten Adventures
This coming Friday the first fabulous five exhibitors will erect their exhibits so that they're all ready for when teachers and librarians charge through the Auckland National Library doors on Monday 20th.
The exhibitors are:
Maria Gill and Bruce Potter with their picture book 'The Last of the Maui's Dolphins'
Julie Scott with her junior fiction books 'The Chitten Adventures'
Melinda Szymanik with her poetic picture book 'While you are Sleeping'
