Mango and Sprint are preparing for ‘big school’.
Grandma comes to visit and gives them a lunchbox.
… But it’s no ordinary lunchbox!
The Magic Lunchbox is a captivating, fun story about packing a healthy lunchbox for school, specifically targeting children in their transition to ‘big’ school.
Central Coast Author Angela Barrett and Illustrator David Walsh have created a delightful storybook to inspire and delight children in the 4 to 6 year age group.
The Magic Lunchbox storybook and supporting resources are available free to download. The resources were developed with the support of Central Coast primary schools and early childhood education and care services, as well as the Families NSW Transition to School Projects Coordinator, Central Coast.
The storybook and resource package has been offered to all Central Coast schools participating in Live Life Well @ School, and all early childhood education and care services participating in Munch and Move.
The Magic Lunchbox provides an innovative and valuable link between these two programs and settings.
