One and Everything is many layered. It’s an artwork, a message, and a prompt for thought and discussion inspired by the Endangered Alphabets project. This is a book about: stories and storytelling, words and language, culture, oral traditions, and expression. At its heart is language and written scripts. Who is it for? One and Everything is a picture book best suited for older readers, those in at least upper primary and into early high school, and for adults.
Book: An Anthology of Aquatic Life. An Anthology of Aquatic Life is a beautiful collection of knowledge about anything and everything to do with the ocean. It is huge, a whole 224 pages, and filled to the brim with interesting information and descriptions of sea life from the intriguing blue sea dragon to the rather terrifying goblin shark. This book has everything in it about the ocean. I loved the descriptions of the animals and the little facts here and there. One of my favourite animals featured is the rainbow-coloured scale worm, which Hume has suggested should be called something more suitable like ‘disco glittersnapper’ or ‘rainbow ravager’.

Develops grade-level appropriate content knowledge. Giving students access to grade-level materials by providing an audiobook accommodation improves their self-esteem and increases their participation in class and peer discussions. They are now able to work alongside their peers and get hours of time back. Just because a student can’t read the words in the same way as their peers, doesn’t mean they aren’t developmentally ready to learn this information. Listening to audiobooks brings the information to the student when they are ready for it, not when they can read it.
