The IBBY Collection of outstanding books for and about young people with disabilities has arrived in Leixlip Library. You can catch it there until Monday 26 February.
To whet your appetite, here is committee member Debbie Thomas's special pick from the collection: LES CHIENS (contraires) THE DOGS (opposites)
Long and short, asleep and awake, wide-eyed and sneaky – dogs are everywhere in this brilliantly simple and hilarious French language book of opposites. Bright colours and eyes to die for draw in both confident and struggling readers, and the smartly-placed flaps are just begging to be flapped. A triumph of design, wit and accessibility to children with learning challenges, and an unforgettable French vocabulary guide for mainstream readers.
