Join Australia's favourite ventriloquist Sarah Jones and her host of puppet pals on an adventure designed to encourage confidence, creativity and curiosity in young readers.

Sarah comes to your classroom bringing everything she needs to perform a fantastic show, so children can learn in the safe and familiar environment and teachers avoid the hassle of organising an excursion and have a chance to enjoy the show too.

Catch The Reading Bug has been produced by a qualified teacher and meets the AUSVEL requirements for English. The show comes with a Teachers Resource Kit full of discussion notes, activities and printables so the fun and learning can continue long after the show is done.
