Emma   –  Kids Alive Do The Five 

Welcome to the Ipswich Libraries Community Champions Virtual Story Time.   

In The Deep End is written and illustrated by Charlie Thomson and tells the story of a child who loves going swimming but is scared of a “monster” that suddenly appears in the deep end of the pool (the monster turns out to be something many of us who grew up in Queensland can relate to!). It’s an inspiring story of overcoming fear.  Join Emma the National Operations Manager from Kids Alive Do The Five as she shares this story from her backyard pool and reminds us of the 5 Key Water Safety Messages 1. Fence the pool  2.  Shut the gate  3.  Watch your mate 4. Supervise and 5.  Learn how to resuscitate.  


First 5 Forever is an initiative of the Queensland Government, coordinated by State Library of Queensland and delivered in partnership with local government.
