Indie Awards 2011 – Mirror

Mirror by Jeannie Baker,

HB $39.95

 

This beautiful and unique children’s picture book has earned a well deserved Indie Award nomination.

As the name suggests, Mirror tells the story of two families; one from Sydney, Australia and one from Morocco, North Africa. Although their lives are often very different, Baker shows us that some things when it comes to family are universal.

The stories are designed to be read simultaneously and although there are few words, the incredible collage style illustrations speak volumes. Mirror is a fantastic learning tool to teach our kids about different ways of life.
