Missing

Missing is one that wouldn’t let me put it down.  Sue’s book is engrossing, raw and emotional, especially when you think you know how it is going to end and it isn’t how you thought it would be.

Fearless Frederic

I read a lot of children’s chapter books, but none have been quite like this one, its story is fresh and real, with an injection of history that brings it all into a well paced adventure.

STEAM Play & Learn

 Not only is this a wonderful resource that can be used in the home or school setting, the author reminds us that it is about the process and not the product, that it is okay to make mistakes, encourage them to tinker, and give them the freedom to be innovative. 

These Are Animals

These are animals is one of the most fun books I have read to a group of children in a while.  It was great to see the children love the book as much as I did, which is why it is now one of my favourite go to books for Storytime sessions.

Alfred’s War

Alfred’s War is a moving tribute to our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Veterans, and the sacrifices they made as they served our country.  This poignant story opens the readers hearts to the Indigenous Australians contribution to the war, and the lack of support and discrimination they were subject to on their return home.

The Walkabout Orchestra

When this gem arrived in the mail I was rather excited, I have always been a fan of the Where’s Wally type of books and this one sure didn’t disappoint.  The Walkabout Orchestra Postcards from around the World, is a beautiful book.
