This is some of the slides from a presentation last week. Thanks to Brad from United Library Services, John from the Calgary Roman Catholic Separate School District No. 1 and all the librarians who listened to my talk - I really enjoyed the opportunity!
Sorry some of the first slides are repeats, the third and fourth show some of the things that influenced as a kid and now.
In particular I loved a cartoon called Coralgol in Poland (I believe it was titled Jeremy in North America and Barnaby in the UK). However I must not have liked bugs because I scribbled them out in a favorite childhood picture book (titled Pierwsza Cyztanka in Poland).
