Inviting Harmony: A story of belonging in Australia (Hardcover)
Inviting Harmony is an ideal companion to Australia's Harmony Day celebrations. The book is suitable for ages 4-8, as a positive introduction to the values of Harmony Day (such as belonging, diversity, and multiculturalism) which can be quite complex. The hope is instilling these values at a young age, leading to a strong sense of community and inclusion as they become the leaders of the future.
The book tells a simple story, featuring a mix of cultures that represent a modern Australian community who are invited to an Aussie BBQ. Humour is in Australian slang, and how a different perspective makes life fun. Features simple bright colours and backgrounds, helping young readers focus on the characters, and cameo appearances by Australian animals.
