Practice to make a difference.

The Faraway Seed

A forest stood tall and proud, all its trees the same. One day a bird dropped a new seed in the forest and a different tree grew. Will the forest accept the new tree? With the theme being multiculturalism, acceptance and celebration of difference, this is the story of a little seed’s journey to acceptance against all obstacles laid out by the forest, eventually making the forest not so ‘perfect’ but very, very beautiful with its diversity and loveliness.

This story is for all those who come from far away and have to adapt, and for those who are already here and chose to accept and include.

Some come by choice, others through necessity and others again by chance.

We were all, at some time in our ancestral history, a seed from a faraway place. – Bloom where you are planted

    Conversation Train: A Visual Approach to Conversation for Children on the Autism Spectrum

    by Joel Shaul

    This inventive picture book uses the metaphor of a train to teach basic conventions of conversation to children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Locomotives are like greetings; they get the train going. Train cars are like conversation turns; it is good to have at least a few when you are in conversation. A switch track is like a tactful change in the topic of conversation. When a conversation veers off-topic it is like a derailed train. As well as attractive colour photographs of trains, the book contains engaging fill-in-the-blank... More info

    Sorry Day

    by Coral Vass

    There was a hum of excitement. Flags flickered in the breeze as Maggie’s heart danced with delight. ‘This is a very special day!’ her mother said. Maggie holds tight to her mother as they await the long anticipated apology to show a willingness to reconcile the past for future generations. In the excitement of the crowd Maggie loses touch of her mother’s hand as is lost.
