Reflection

By Rebecka Sharpe Shelberg
Illustrated by Robin Cowcher

This poignant picture book is about remembering those who serve in war.

Left! Left! Left! Right! Left! We make our way in the dark. A family journeys through the early morning darkness … A group of young men huddle in a cold muddy trench ... Reflection is a powerful tribute to those who have served their country.

  • Rebecka's sparse text manages to carry the weight of the subject with elegance and great emotion.
  • Features beautiful ink and watercolour drawings by Robin Cowcher, illustrator of Little Dog and the Christmas Wish.
  • This picture book is a great way to introduce children to the history of Australia and its role in various conflicts around the globe. Child readers will be able to connect to the story through the family depicted attending a dawn service.
