Featuring these NZ Books for 2023
I’ve been dreaming…
Marley wakes up full of excitement and expectation. She’s been dreaming that she has written the most marvelous story and now she’s awake it’s time to set about making it happen. However, the road to creating her story is much more difficult than it first seems. What happens in dreams often isn’t how things turn out and Marley finds herself embarking on a journey filled with unexpected twists and turns. To reach a destination where ‘dreams come true’ she must overcome some pretty significant obstacles.
Dreaming is much more challenging when you’re awake!
Join Marley on her new STORY QUEST adventure featuring a selection of the BEST New Zealand Children’s Books of 2023. Students will be immersed into the storytelling and interaction with the New Zealand books woven into an engaging, original narrative filled with music, adventure and intrigue!
