New book was inspired by trip to PNG

BY DAVID MILLS

Fiction is fun CHILDREN’S AUTHOR Libby Hathorn launched her latest publication, I Love You Book, inspired by a trip to PNG, in Sydney on Friday.

The picture book, with illustrations by Heath McKenzie, was inspired by a trip to PNG where Hathorn watched parents, who had only just learnt to read, tell stories to their children.

“It brought home to me the power of reading itself, as it opens you up to the world, and the potential of literacy to open minds and hearts simply through books being placed in someone’s hands,” Hathorn said.

St Catherine’s Junior School head, Sarah Guy, said her students were excited about being read to by a well-known author such as Ms Hathorn.

“She’s a prolific writer, but she certainly doesn’t sacrifice quality for quantity,” Ms Guy said.
