"A Rainbow Story with Sofia and Matisse" is a bridge between worlds. Through the eyes of two engaging characters, children will embark on a journey that uncovers the layers of Australia's cultural landscape.


They'll learn to foster respect and understanding from a young age.

This book is an invitation for young minds to explore the complexities of multiculturalism, to recognize past wounds, and to see how diversity is not just a challenge to overcome but a strength to celebrate.

Open the pages, and let's nurture a generation of healers, thinkers, and bridge-builders for a more inclusive and harmonious future.

This book is fantastic.

It's a work of art!"
