School Program Story by Yvonne Mes
Chris Collin is a full time author and publisher of whacky, rhyming, Australian children’s books such as Funky Chicken and Chooks in Space illustrated by Megan Kitchin.
He is also an engaging presenter with a session that immerses children through story, music, and with the assistance of some amazing puppets.
Throughout his session he cleverly weaves video snippets and songs. Children from prep to grade 2 went from utter concentration, when listening to the stories, to belly-laughing at a sleepy joke-telling possum and a funky chicken.
Children got to dress up as the animal characters from the stories, sang songs, danced and acted. Dress-ups included giant spotty bottoms, astronauts, funky chickens and much more.
Chris’ presentation was so infectious, even the grown-ups got up and danced!
