Losika Writes News — Multilingual kids

Diverse languages

Diverse languages

When groups of people/languages/stories are omitted from books, we are taught that these people/languages/stories don't exist and aren't as important as those that are displayed. Losika Writes aims to change this, one book at a time. Everyone's story and language deserves to be heard Everyone should be able to find themselves in a book So spend that time reading with them and to them... Buckle up for the ride through all the universe and the many stories that lie within the pages of a book. Happy reading with @losikawrites

Mirrors and windows - the importance of diverse books

Mirrors and windows - the importance of diverse books

Children's books can act like mirrors and windows. Mirrors in that they can reflect on children's own lives and windows as they give them a chance to learn about someone's life. This helps to reduce stereotypes and reduces fear of the "other" if they get to meet them and learn about them from an early age.  Everyone deserves to see themselves and their language in books.

Afternoons with Richelle Hunt of ABC radio Melbourne have occasionally had the African flavour of Losika Writes as I discuss all things diversity, motherhood, bilingual childrens books etc.
