Reflection

By Rebecka Sharpe Shelberg
Illustrated by Robin Cowcher

This award-winning and 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.

  • “Information and thought-provoking … Highly recommended.” Magpies magazine
  • 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.
