GRANDMA'S TREASURED SHOES
Grandma has oodles and oodles of shoes. So why are these scratched and dusty ones so special?
Written by Australian children's author Coral Vass, illustrated by Christina Huynh and published by the National Library of Australia, ‘Grandma’s Treasured Shoes’ is a picture book about a grandmother’s journey from Vietnam to Australia as a little girl. This is a refugee story told through gentle illustrations and a rhythmic story. This sensitively told story encourages children to understand the plight felt by refugees, in the past and today, and to appreciate the contribution that refugees have made in shaping this nation.
