Books we recommend
The Singing Hat
Some books are written with quirkiness to help convey complex ideas. The Singing Hat by Tohby Riddle is a delightful story which addresses the way we treat those who fall outside our idea of ‘normal’. He uses descriptive language and sophisticated illustrations incorporating collage. The story is a sensitive but gently humorous exploration of social isolation, inclusion, problem solving and compassion.
Jenny Angel by Margaret Wild, illustrated by Anne Spudvilas, shows the courage of those who face a battle with a terminal disease, directly and indirectly. To be used carefully as it evokes such raw emotions, but shows the beauty of love, strong relationships, compassion and honesty in the face of death.
