An Vrombaut with Molly, Kolina, Amelia and Isabella
The High March girls aged 5-7 years old had a treat last Thursday when An Vrombaut visited the school. An is the creator of the hugely popular children's television series “64 Zoo Lane.”
An spent time with the 6 year olds explaining how she creates a book from scratch. Right from the first idea to the proofs, including the illustrations!
Amelia said, “An was fantastic. I liked it when she showed us a giant toothbrush for her book 'Smile Crocodile Smile.” Kolina added, “I loved her stories because they have such lovely illustrations.”
“The children had a fabulous day,” said Mrs Beverly Mackay, the Year 1 teacher. “They really loved hearing her tell the story of Dear Dragon. The children were so enthusiastic that many of them bought a book as a memento of the day. An not only signed them, but wrote a personalised message and did a little drawing in each book!”
