PORT MORESBY - My new children’s story book, ‘When I Grow Up’, has just been published and is available.
The book is a Papua New Guinean collaboration between me, artist Clarisa Alu and poet Bradley Gewa.
It’s my first independently published children’s story book with the assistance of both a Papua New Guinean artist and publisher.
Zechariah, Sylvia, Rodriquez, Sheila, Kevin, Kathleen, Nehemiah and Tracey are eight children who dream of the wonderful careers they want to have when they grow up.
The book is inspired by traditional art and every character represents a province of Papua New Guinea. It is suitable for early learners up to Grade 4.
The book teaches children to dream big and helps them understand that, regardless of gender or ethnicity, they can achieve anything they wish for.
My collection of 32 children’s story books is available on Amazon through this link.
