┬áLast Wednesday I was invited to share ‘Seadog’ and ‘There Was an Old Sailor’ with young children at the Monash KOALA Kids Book Club at Monash Medical Centre.The bookclub aims to provide a spot of normal in the middle of medical treatment.

We read ‘Seadog’ then provided individual Seadogs with personalised coats. Then we read ‘There Was an Old Sailor’ before creating a Sailor with a wide open mouth. Sea creatures great and small then disappeared into his tummy, before being ‘burped’ out again.

It was hilarious, as Sailor was fed spaghetti with his seafood, via his open head. He then released his meal at the other end. Toilet humour. It’s a winner. Every time.
