World Book Day

World Book Day at Evelina Children’s Hospital School

As part of our World Book Day 2017 celebrations we were lucky enough to have the author and illustrator Jane Porter working with us for two days at the end of which we produced our very own book!

Jane began her project with a morning on dialysis ward, where she helped the children create some beautiful rainforest creatures. She also visited other wards, and spent a day in the classrooms creating the narrative of the book and working on the layout of the colourful pages.

Our finished book is a beautiful collaborative, one-off, hand-made large collage book on the theme of rainforests including a bit of science, ecology and geography but in the form of a story narrated by a parrot!

Jane commented “ The work the children produced was wonderfully exciting and vibrant” . She has now put it all together into a hand-bound book for us to treasure , to read , and to exhibit in our Art exhibition in July. Thank you Jane.
