Meerkat SPLASH

This has to be one of the best colour recognition books that I have seen in a while.  The meerkats are cute, the words flow easily,  and it is one of those books that are playfully engaging.  

Stand Up for the Future

I believe this is a must have book for all Australians to read, not just because the royalties go to charity, but because it shows that our young people are thinking of the future, are overcoming the odds to advocate for positive social change.

Lottie and Walter

“Lottie has a secret…Only Lottie knew that a shark was hiding in the swimming pool.”  Each week at Swimming lesson Lottie just sits and watches, making sure the shark doesn’t eat her.  It is not until one week that Lottie makes a new friend Walter, that she begins to find her bravery.

Outside

Going outside seems simple right?  Just as telling you about this book should also be simple, but it’s not, I barely know where to start. It had me on edge the whole time, I was confused and even frustrated, the solutions seemed so simple but they weren’t.  My heart ached, I wanted Ele to be safe, to be free, to understand what the Outside is.
