123 Card Sets from The I Am, Movement
Numbers with Aboriginal designs by Aboriginal artists

“The I Am, Movement” arose from the recent diagnosis of my two-year-old son, Slade, with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). As we attended therapy appointments and doctors’ visits, we were given piles of information and resources but found there to be a lack of culturally appropriate support, resources and connection for Aboriginal families. To address this lack of resources, we offer beautiful Aboriginal-designed flash cards appropriate for use at home, in education settings and in child therapy teams. These flashcards are a tool of healing and connecting to culture on our journey. One set of flashcards teaches numbers 1 – 10 and the other set teaches the alphabet alongside images of native animals. In addition to offering culturally-safe learning resources, “The I Am, Movement” aims de-stigmatise conditions by instead focusing on what you want to be; “I am, unique”, “I am, strong”, “I am, deadly”.

As Sergio embarks on his quest for love, the sky ‘Aurora Australis’ changes its colour depending on his emotional state.

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.

Caring Spaces, Learning Places
3rd edition

Children deserve to spend their days in well-designed environments that support their needs and stimulate their learning. Adults who spend their days teaching and caring for young children deserve environments that maximize their skills. The newest revision of Caring Spaces, Learning Places is a book of ideas, observations, problems, solutions, examples, resources, photographs, and poetry. Here you will find current thinking about children's environments - 380 pages to challenge you, stimulate you, inspire you. EDITOR'S NOTE: Jim Greenman was a designer, philosopher, and provocateur, but he was first and foremost a teacher. His teachings and insights live on through his writing, and while I was stunned at how up-to-date and pertinent Caring Spaces remains, I shouldn't have been. After all, I use things that Jim taught me every day. To say that the editing team had a light touch with this 3rd edition of Caring Spaces would be an understatement. Jim's words stand the test of time incredibly well, and this new edition leaves his sometimes quirky and always insightful prose intact. We have worked hard to include updated references, a new appendices section, and to refine the layout and graphics in ways that make the book more readable, but the ideas, anecdotes, strategies, and innate "rightness" of the book we left alone. My hope is that Caring Spaces inspires a new generation of educators and designers to realize Jim's vision of spaces for children where wonder, beauty, sensory richness, and functionality are the norm and not the exception.
