Welcome to Australia

July 13, 2022 at 8:29 pm (Uncategorized)

This is the most recent version of “Welcome to Australia”, a book I started writing way back in 2018. It is designed to be read by immigrant and refugee children with their parents. 

Eventually (in some cases MAYBE by the end of 2022) there will be versions in Dari Persian, Mandarin, Indonesian, Arabic, and Spanish.

Update: The Indonesian translation is finished, checked, and being formatted. The Dari Persian version is finished but hasn’t had its final translator check yet. The Mandarin and Spanish versions are with volunteer translators.

As you can see, the back cover isn’t fixed yet.

A lot of the illustrators/models donated their images (and there are a LOT of photos of my kids) but I made a point of paying refugees and Aboriginal people (both models and sensitivity readers).

The English version (almost identical to the above) is just about to go to print, and will cost $20.
