Last week during the release of our new book, Sunday Skating, Hannah Sommerville and I were thrilled to learn that our previous book, Jetty Jumping, was shortlisted for the Speech Pathology Australia 20th Annual Book of the Year awards.
For two decades, this prestigious event has guided generations of children and families towards captivating and educational literature that promotes language and literacy development.
Speech Pathology Australia conducts its Book of the Year Awards to recognise and celebrate Australia’s best books for children’s language and literacy development. To learn that Jetty Jumping is once again recognised for it’s connection to literacy development, and continues to be a book that helps the crucial role speech pathologists play in supporting children’s language and literacy development is wonderful.
It’s an incredible honor to be on this list amongst so many talented storytellers. Congratulations to all who are shortlisted.
Many thanks to our publisher Hardie Grant Children’s Publishing for their ongoing support.
