The IBBY Collection of outstanding books for and about young people with disabilities has arrived in Clondalkin Library. You can catch it there until Monday 5 March.
To celebrate this new leg of the tour, here is Committee Member Tatyana Feeney's top pick: Un Hueco (A Hole) by Yael Frankel from Argentina.
"The book I have chosen is Number 17 in the collection, Un Hueco (A Hole). What appeals to me about this book is the simplicity not only of the illustrations, but of the concept. A hole inside is a perfect way to describe grief, and this book shows the hole with such simple, yet sophisticated, illustrations that even the youngest readers can understand the feelings the hole represents.
This is a book that could prompt conversations and possibly make discussion easier for even the youngest children who may have suffered a loss."
