Sophie Scott Goes South by Alison Lester

Sophie Scott Goes South has been shortlisted for the CBCA Picture Book Illustrators award.

Nine year old Sophie is heading off to Antarctica with her dad, the captain of the ice-breaker Aurora.

Lester uses child-like drawings, photographs, maps, stamps and storyboard collages to flesh out her story. The story is told in a diary format similar to that of Lester's 2005 award winning book Are We There Yet?

This book is obviously designed to fit into the Primary School Stage 3 Human Society & Its Environment - Antarctica topic. The information is accessible, easy to read and understand and very interesting.

I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) 'third party cookies', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

All anonymous comments will be deleted.

If all else fails, you can contact me on my fb page or twitter.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
