Looking for some new additions to your library? Journalist Emily Campbell explores two new picture books that aim to teach children about important social justice concepts including respect for all, the power of the collective and valuing diversity.
The concept of solidarity is fundamental to the union movement, and the team at Victorian Trades Hall Council provide a great introduction to young children about the power of the collective in their new book Sticking Together.
Launched in December 2021 Sticking Together is the brainchild of two creative union officials from Vic Trades Hall: author James Raynes and illustrator Mitzi McKenzie-King.
Sticking Together features quirky rhyming language paired with gorgeous illustrations to convey an important message to children about how important it is for people to put aside their differences and work together for the greater good.
