What is the first book you remember reading?

Tarryn: Fox in Socks by Dr Seuss.

Maddy: Hairy Maclary by Lynley Dodd.

What book or series do you hope will be turned into a movie or TV show one day?

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover.

What is one book that everyone should read and why?

Boy Overboard by Morris Gleitzmen.

Both of us agree as this was a great book from when we were in school. Even though this is a fiction text, this book opened our minds to the difficulties and challenges that other people face in the world. It is a great book to realise how lucky we are and were as children to have a great and sturdy education here in Australia.

Tarryn: All of your Perfects by Colleen Hoover.
