Kids illustrated the Elephants with Wings. Check out the religions Tarak inserted in the artwork. Kids can get Harmony Week. So impressive!



As a specialist in child growth and development and a children’s author, our kids NEED to know the challenges and the ways to work together.


Harmony Week is even more relevant than ever.


It is not about lectures. It is about identifying with real people. Thinking about the big issues and the kids’ working out what they can do.


All my books address HARMONY as we seek to counter conflict. We can never give up.


Two books which holds the essence of HARMONY WEEK are:-


  1. Ships in the Field Pathways to peace from refugees to Australia


Ships in the Field is both personal and universal. Anna Pignataro and Susanne Gervay translated their families’ personal experiences of migration into Ships in the Field translating it into the universal refugee immigrant experience of war, loss, migration, hope and home.


  1. Elephants Have Wings


I was simply swept off my feet by the quality of the work. Elephants Have Wings apart from being a wonderful book for children in its own right militates against many stereotypes around the discourse of children's literature.  It proves once and for all that children's literature need not be childish.  Great ideas and complex thoughts need not adopt complex mode of polarisation and a grave bearing.  The book demonstrates with great power that we can teach our children profound truths and timeless values.

I’ve attached these books as ways forward.


It would be great talking about it.
