Have Bobson Farm Visit Your School
Book Julie Robertson and Sharon Perry to visit your school for an interactive Bobson Farm story time tailored for preschoolers through to young primary students. Along with story time the children will have the opportunity to view the original illustrations, inspiring and encouraging creativity in any young budding author/illustrators.
Our presentation includes not only a story time, but also a discussion around the process of creating and publishing a book, displaying of original artworks, along with artisan cushion characters for children to hold and answer questions about after the stories are read. We also have a question and answer time at the end in which the children tend to have some very interesting questions about all of the different stages of the process of creating a book, and of course some funny ones about the characters themselves.
Our business model:
We are more than happy to come in and present this at no charge to your school, requesting only that a pre-order form goes home in the lead up to the incursion. We have no minimum order to secure your visit.
Sharon Perry and Julie Robertson
Julie has been painting these animals for many years and would often be told that they should be turned into children’s books. With a plethora of art as inspiration, author Sharon Perry had no problem writing these beautiful books with Julie, giving her an even greater platform to continue painting and exploring the world of Bobson Farm, a place of colourful ball trees, square dogs and nervous little birds that use umbrellas.
Artisan Linen Cushion Characters
Original cushion characters from the books designed and created by Julie Robertson for the children to hold throughout the presentation, increasing their engagement with the books.
We believe this greatly enhances story time, fueling creativity, leaving the children with a sense of excitement with regards to possibly creating a book themselves one day. We show how the illustrations began as very basic sketches, becoming full colour illustrations, which then went on to form the books through creative graphic design.
