Storyelling session: A Bus Called Heaven by Bob Graham
What happens when an old broken down bus appears in Stella’s street? How could this bus possibly bring a community together?
Join Megan, from the Parliament’s Education team, for a reading of this award-winning story from Bob Graham – a unique Australian children’s writer who illustrates his own books.
This book’s theme of hope uniting a community is an especially timely tale today.
