Author Lisa Stephens entertained children in the Pre-Prep’s Den with stories of her dog Cha Cha and her two boys Harry and James. The Australian author, who gives 50% of her profits to support the Australian Guide Dogs Association, has now published 5 books about their family pet.
As well as reading from some of her stories, Lisa also got the 4-8 year olds singing and dancing and thinking about what it is like to be blind and the kind of critical support that Guide Dogs offer. ‘Skyping’ her dog and her oldest son in Australia, Lisa helped the children to ‘meet’ her dog but they also had the opportunity to say hello to Fern another Golden Retriever that came to visit.
