This book was made by children and families from a circus playgroup at the West Sunshine Community Centre. With Kids’ Own artist, Ailsa Wild, they created this story of hula hooping, flying, making art and smiling!
This book is one of a series developed as part of the ‘Once Upon a Circus’ Project, using circus skills, art-making and book-making activities to promote literacy, social skill and motor skill development. It also promotes relationship building within communities.
Partners: Westside Circus, Communities for Children, Brimbank, Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, The Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation, ANZ Charitable Trustees and the Scanlon Foundation.
