Mr Huff at the Newcomb Library – Geelong Regional CBCA Event

Book Week in Geelong started off with a very large Huff at the Newcomb Regional Library on the Saturday morning.

Each year, in celebration of Book Week and Literacy Week, Meerkat Productions adapts one of the books shortlisted for the CBCA Picture Book of The Year Award to perform to the public.

This year they used Anna Walker’s beautiful Picture Book Mr Huff, which highlights feelings of anxiety and assists young children in dealing with the worrying feelings that might accompany a bad day.

The free performance of Mr Huff, the winner of the Early Childhood category of the CBCA Awards, sponsored by CBCA Vic, was held at Newcomb Library on Saturday. Children and adults together were enthralled as the actors engaged them all and took us on a journey with young Bill who was having a very bad day.
