NZ Book Month : Children’s competition

March 1, 2012

March is New Zealand Book Month.  As part of the celebrations, children are invited to enter Scholastic’s “Seesaw Po” competion.

“Seesaw Po”  is a children’s picture book written by New Zealand resident Kyle Mewburn, and illustrated by New Zealander Katz Cowley.

A group of four animal friends go to the playground to have fun on the swing, the slide, the roundabout and the seesaw. Upon arriving at the swing, they notice an ant sitting on it. ‘Shoo, ant!’ they say, but Po (the hippo) says no, he was there first and gives him a push. Then all the friends have a turn – but when Po gets on, the swing refuses to budge. Then he gets stuck on the slide, and stops the roundabout. And as for the seesaw …The other three friends head off home and Po sits disconsolately on the seesaw …and then an amazing thing happens …

 See the poster and count the ants.  Enter using the PDF entry form. (email, fax or drop them to the library)   Poster/entry form also available at your local library.

There are 5 signed copies of this book to be won!
