This Small Blue Dot
BRONZE award winner, MadeForMums Awards 2021
With a strong message of interconnectedness, hope and empowerment, This Small Blue Dot follows a little girl exploring the big and small things in life. From contemplating our place on this 'blue dot' to the best Italian, Chinese and Indian desserts, the book provides a broader, more inclusive view of who we are, where we come from and where our dreams may take us.
Delivering big lessons with playful humour, the precocious young narrator shares her take on nature and the environment, wisdom from elders, broccoli, embracing difference and the power of imagination. This Small Blue Dot captures not only lessons on life but also the sense of fun and strangeness that comes with being a member of the human family on planet Earth.
