"Noonie and the Missing Bone" by Casey Hawkins- Children's Book and colour in

Noonie and the Missing Bone is a rhyming story featuring two lovable domestic pets. Their actions teach the importance of acceptance, humility, working together and companionship.

Casey wrote and illustrated the story based on her everyday life. She aims to inspire and support young writers to do the same. Casey explains, “There are reluctant writers in every classroom around Australia. What they often fail to recognise is that they’ve already built up a bank of quality stories from their everyday experiences; they just don’t know how to readily access them.”

Noonie and the Missing Bone incorporates basic writing techniques students can identify and apply to develop their own stories. The illustrations are equally simplistic to encourage students to create their own line drawings to accompany their published texts.

Included with the book:

-Black and white internal pages to allow the reader to colour in the characters.
-Instructions and planning pages to help guide the reader to develop their own short story.
