Please join us to hear June discuss the “double helix of children’s play”.

It integrates tradition and innovation, mimicry and mockery, the learning of a society’s mores and conventions and their determined sub version”
June is a leading expert on children’s play lore and one of Australia’s foremost children’s authors. She has delighted millions of children with her much loved ‘Far Out Brussel Sprout’ a very funny and rather naughty compilation of playground rhymes. June’s research has examined what children do when largely free of adult direction or control- their colloquial speech, songs, games, rhymes, riddles, jokes, insults and secret languages, their friendships and enmities, their beliefs and hopes.
