Works about this Work

Worth a Thousand Words : The Top 10 Best Australian Children’s Picture Books Nicholas Reece , 2013 single work review
— Appears in: The Conversation , 20 December 2013;

'The academics and the “mummy bloggers” are in furious agreement – reading picture books to children is one of the best things you can do for a child’s development.

It also happens to be, in the opinion of this humble author, one of the best things an adult can do for their own development. A reminder that the greatest joys in life are often the simplest.' (Introduction)
