    I get asked this question a lot and here is the simple answer:

     

     

    The Books To Life CBCA Picture Book show is designed as a whole school activity. It is both targeted & appropriate for all students from Pre-school right through to Year 6.

     

     

    My creative team & I have been designing & performing these CBCA picture book shows as Pre-School /Prep / Kinder /Reception / Foundation to Year 6 performances for over 16 years now so we know that there is often a concern that the show might be either designed only for the younger students or only for the older ones. Let me assure you that all primary school year levels are equally accommodated for in the Picture Book show.

     

     

    "How can you possibly do that?" I hear you ask.

     

     

    This is achieved by delivering a HUGE variety in the content, performance styles & stagecraft elements, all being designed to appeal to different ages at different times in the show. As such, it works really well for everybody, and let's be honest, if it's good, it's good. Like me, don't you still love the original movies of "Charlie & the Chocolate Factory" & "The Wizard of Oz"? That's because there is content that works for different ages at different times in the performance.

     

     

    Great stories that are told well work for all ages.

     

     

    So that's what we strive to do. Tell great Australian stories well, in a variety of ways that we know appeal to all the different levels of primary school.

     

     

    But don't take my word for it. Below are a bunch of testimonials from schools who have seen our Picture Book shows since 1999, detailing how these shows work brilliantly for all primary school age groups:

     

     


    "Feedback from staff has been overwhelmingly positive, none of us can remember any performance or activity that was so engaging for the whole school, it is rare to find something that caters for F-6 in any meaningful way. The students are still talking about you a week later." Ruskin Park PS, Croydon, VIC

     

     

    "I was a little concerned that it would suit P's, 1's & 2's better than our 5's and 6's - but it was perfect!!!" Goulburn Valley GS, Shepparton Nth, VIC

     

     

    "Very entertaining, suitable for Prep to Year 7." Kersbrook PS, Kersbrook, SA

    “As a teacher of 5 and 6 year olds not all students connected to what the story (in book form) really told and its hidden messages. After viewing your show they have a greater understanding.” Cobden PS, VIC
