Wrapping up the school year with one of my favorite books, The Great Kapok Tree.
In this story, the nonhuman and human animals that call the Kapok Tree home speak on behalf of their species and for future generations.
My students then role played and each shared their love for their home and concern for its future.
This story and activity allowed my students to think critically about environmental issues and it's impacts on the lives on other species from their point of view.
They also explored solutions to reduce humans dependency on our earth's valuable resources.

31 Days of Cystic Fibrosis. May 25 (It’s 65 Roses Day today!)
The Mystery of the Sixty-Five Roses
In my days as Library Manager for the Swan Education Resource Centre, inclusivity became a topical buzzword. As I gathered books and other resources for a special section to house together, it quickly became apparent that Cystic Fibrosis was woefully underrepresented in the collection. Next, I searched high and low for books that both explained CF and could be used in an education setting that were available to purchase. Resources were either outdated or Americanised, So I decided to write my own.
The obvious organisation to approach was CFWA. Despite the fact that CFWA wasn’t a publishing house and that I was an unknown and unproven writer who didn’t have an idea let alone a single word written on paper, I walked away from a meeting with an agreement that CFWA would publish my book. It was a journey that would take six years and a new set of lungs to complete.
In May 2011 I didn't know if I’d live long enough to see this book in print, but I knew that if I died, the project was advanced enough to continue without me.
Bonus Fact: The dedication in The Mystery of the Sixty-Five Roses reads as follows: “Dedicated to Dr Gerard Ryan, MB BS, RRACP (Uncle Gerry) and Sue Morey, OAM, FRCNA (Aunty Sue) for over twenty years of outstanding health care, even when faced with a (sometimes) difficult patient.” I know they’d both say they were just doing their job, but when “just doing your job” means the difference between people living and dying, a book dedication does not even come close to an adequate way to say thank you.

Flynn the Loh’li has a problem. He doesn’t know how to encourage his little brother to overcome his fear of water, or how someone can overcome their fears at all. So, before he thinks he can help his brother, Flynn embarks on a mission to conquer his own fear of heights by climbing the tallest mountain in Lok'Ree Valley. But it’s not the climb up that gives him trouble, it’s the climb down!
As Flynn slinks over the craggiest rocks he had ever scaled before, he slips and, CRACK, he falls down a crevice! Frightened and alone, with the sun nearly gone, a glowing butterfly flutters to his aid and encourages him to trust his instincts. Will Flynn do so, or will he risk being stuck down there forever?
