Braille – On the Move

I see this book as a thing of beauty. You’re probably asking why? Or maybe you see the beauty in it too. I see beauty in inclusiveness, in access for all, in all society having access to books. I love that the book is about cars, tractors, planes and helicopters just as books for seeing children would be.

I’m Australian Too

In writing this book, Mem Fox called her book a “Rhythmic, loving, friendly Australian book, about all the people who have come here to make Australia the lovely place it is.” I believe Mem has achieved this as she has captured the Australian spirit and more.

The Way Home in the Night

Lights in doorways, bikes leaning on buildings, baby rabbit, the moon and balloons all adorned the pages at some point in the book. They tell me a story of parties, a street at night, bed time and people waiting for someone to come home. I could go on for some time about how much I enjoyed the illustrations and the impact they had on me, but overall, they were just delightful.
