David and I had the privilege of meeting successful children’s author, Chris Cheng, at the Australia Day Ceremony in Kempsey, as he was the Ambassador this year. We were delighted to have Chris and his wife as dinner guests, along with the Major and her husband, and our Federal Member, Luke Hartsuyker and his wife.
Chris is passionate about early literacy and reading to children. He is a former school teacher who has made it his life's purpose to create engaging and beautiful books for children and young readers. We all know how important it is to make reading enjoyable. It was so lovely to sit around a dinner table and have everyone share their stories and memories of reading to their children.
Children have a hardwired need for positive attention and spending 20 minutes engaged in a picture book or novel, is time well spent in not only strengthening your bond, but also fostering brain development and helping your child learn.
