Raven’s Mountain on Speech Pathology Australia Awards Shortlist
These awards “aim to promote literacy and the need for good literacy skills, while building a library of resources that speech pathologists, teachers and parents can use to help promote literacy and reading.”
There are 12 books in the Upper Primary section, and reading the list, I can only feel flattered to have Raven in there with them – and especially nice to see her with my friend Lian Tanner’s Museum of Thieves.
When you get right down to it, recognition and praise, which is exactly what an award shortlisting is, always feels good!
