Are These Your Glasses?

Author(s): Gavin McCormack (click on the author's name for more titles)

Are These Your Glasses? tells the tale of, Sergio, a lonely penguin who is faced with many hurdles as he grows up. Sergio is a champion against bullying. With his father as a guide, he learns some valuable lessons.These lessons help him to show great determination and strength as he tries to find true friendship.

The book has been designed to inspire deep conversations within the classroom and home about what it feels like to be excluded. It explains how we can overcome bullying with care and love.

The story of Sergio has the potential to educate children on a variety of levels. It inspires deep conversations about what it feels like to be excluded from a group and teaches children that the gift of kindness is the greatest gift of all.

As Sergio embarks on his quest for love, the sky ‘Aurora Australis’ changes its colour depending on his emotional state. This should allow those children who find it difficult to express their emotions in words to relate to Sergio’s situation. The book has a strong moral focus with many fine details and inferential clues within the beautiful illustrations which can be great discussion starters with children. And to top it all off, it has a beautiful ending.

The book is supported by detailed guides for parents and educators to assist them to extend the learning with the children in their care.

About the author
Gavin McCormack is a primary school teacher based in Sydney Australia who wants to make a difference. As a child, he was bullied at school. The feeling of the bullying he faced stayed with him well into his adult life. After working with children for almost 20 years, he has seen patterns emerging, especially in those children who are socially excluded. He decided to write this book to eradicate social exclusion in primary schools and to educate young people about the long-term effects of bullying and exclusion.

Documentation and the Early Years Learning Framework
Researching in Reggio Emilia and Australia

Author(s): Jan Millikan, Stefania Giamminuti (click on the author's name for more titles)

This new title in our EYLF series links the EYLF and documentation. Drawing on research from both Reggio Emilia and Australia, the authors are well placed to offer these insights.

From the Foreword by Jennifer Sumsion:

Jan and Stefania have taken up the challenge of ensuring that belonging, being and becoming doesn’t descend into cliché. As they explain, they have written ‘with the aim of sparking enriched responses to belonging, being and becoming’. And indeed, they have succeeded beautifully in showing how the principles of the Reggio Emilia educational project in Northern Italy can map so effectively onto the principles of the EYLF.

But importantly, they also show how bringing Reggio Emilia principles into conversation with the EYLF can provoke new ways of thinking about the possibilities of the EYLF. By focusing particularly on documentation, they make a timely and valuable contribution. They challenge some of the many myths about documentation that have emerged and taken hold over recent years. They complicate every day understandings and push readers to think more deeply about the possibilities that this distinctive aspect of early childhood practice affords. But equally importantly, they discuss ethical issues and related concerns that have been raised about documentation.

Eco Smart
A Sustainable Standard for Early Education

EcoSmart: A sustainable standard for early education will support your team on its journey to a more sustainable community with the introduction of concepts, actions and resources that will inspire the whole team. ECEEN believes experiences in our early years provide an opportunity for life-long learning and that our habits of future years will be influenced by the actions of those around us now. We believe the relationships fostered in children’s services between educators, children and families are the foundations of a caring, sustainable community to nurture ECEEN’s DREAM. ‘Together we must dream of a great place to live, a place that is fair and equitable, that values the Earth and all its life and resources for the present and for future generations. This revised edition of Eco Smart is very timely. The young children we educate today will be adults in the frontline when global warming exceeds a predicted 2 degree threshold. Critical reflection about how we work in early childhood services for sustainable futures for all children is an imperative. Aligned with the NQS, Eco Smart offers a comprehensive set of action points for urgent change across policy and practice in early childhood services. Dr Sue Elliott Course Coordinator BT(ECE), BEd(EC), BEd(ECT), BEd(ECP) & BEd Studies School of Education University of New England The strategies and actions in Eco Smart – A sustainable standard for early education are supporting Kids Uni CBD to move together with children, families and their local community to advocate and act for a sustainable world.

Sustainability and The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF)

Author(s): Sue Elliott (click on the author's name for more titles)

As momentum around early childhood education for sustainability has built over the last decade, it is evident that starting sustainably in early childhood is not only possible, but also necessary. For children, families and educators to collaboratively construct sustainable early child communities is the goal and this can be facilitated by implementing the EYLF through a lens of sustainability.

Reflecting on and implementing the EYLF from a sustainability perspective is a critical starting point for every early childhood community.

Unearthing Why
Stories of thinking and learning with children

Author(s): Jill McLachlan, Clare Britt (click on the author's name for more titles)

Unearthing Why is a collection of stories offering a distinct and hopeful outlook for the future of education.

Each chapter invites you to consider the complexity and beauty of children’s capacity to learn, think and be together. Jill McLachlan’s and Clare Britt’s retellings of their experiences learning alongside children in prior-to-school and primary school based contexts will gently, but compellingly, invite you to join them in considering the deep purposes of education — questioning the ‘whys’, just below the surface, that inform ‘what’ and ‘how’ you teach.

Perhaps, as they have, you will find yourself looking beneath the surface of your everyday and begin (or continue in) asking questions that lead you towards new and optimisticways of being with children and living out your teaching with a new measure of dignity and joy.

“This book has great potential to contribute to and extend the conversations around the inspirations from the educational project of Reggio Emilia.The context of the early years of school offers rich possibilities for dialogue amongst those teachers who might have considered themselves to be outside the ‘Reggio space’. This is a welcome contribution, and one that will no doubt be relevant to contexts outside the Australian one”. 
Stefania Giamminuti,
Lecturer, Early Childhood Education, Curtin University (Perth, WA).

Voices & Visions
Aboriginal Early Childhood Education in Australia

Author(s): Karen Martin (click on the author's name for more titles)

Just as our visions will be the present of some young Aboriginal children who are not yet born, these will be made real through our voices and actions right now. The question begs to be asked: ‘What kind of people do we want those children of the future to remember us as being?’

This book reflects the stories of practitioners in Aboriginal early childhood education in Australia. It is not just their stories, but a text for how Aboriginal worldviews and frameworks are incorporated in what they do. As Aboriginal people we have always had to conform to a Western schooling system, one which does not fully appreciate our knowledges. In what you are about to read there is an implied but silent script in that, ‘you listen now and let us tell you’.

From the Foreword by Jackie Huggins, Inaugural Co-Chair: Aboriginal Congress

I really liked all of the stories and all the voices and how the narra-tives wove around key learnings, highlighting the important events from the author’s points of view, how these were experienced and other things that the writer wants the reader to know: the successes, the challenges; stories of family, of country and so much more. But they are also all essentially stories about early childhood education and what it means to be a good Aboriginal educator … I have never met any of the authors personally but feel I know them after reading the stories.

Professor Maggie Walter, Pro Vice-Chancellor Aboriginal Research and Leadership, University of Tasmania
