One and Everything is many layered. It’s an artwork, a message, and a prompt for thought and discussion inspired by the Endangered Alphabets project. This is a book about: stories and storytelling, words and language, culture, oral traditions, and expression. At its heart is language and written scripts. Who is it for? One and Everything is a picture book best suited for older readers, those in at least upper primary and into early high school, and for adults.
Book: Unnecessary Drama. With its symmetrically appealing, colour matched cover and excellent title, I was actually a little bit in love with this book before I opened it. And after? Well, I was delightfully hooked. Nina Kenwood is a YA author with street cred; her first and much-loved novel It Sounded Better In My Head won the Text prize, and now she’s quite possibly a contender for any number of others. Upon moving into a run-down student share house in Melbourne, our flawed, confounding and endearing protagonist Brooke – who’s quite partial to writing a list, carving an ornate fruit platter and remembering everyone’s birthday – discovers that there are just three simple house rules here. No pets, no household relationships and no unnecessary drama.
There’s plenty to get excited about for younger bookworms, whether sharing stories out loud or encouraging independent reading.

Readers review: Our family is also expecting a baby and this was the perfect book for us to read to them! They loved that the entire family was involved, so similar to our own. I highly recommend to any family awaiting the arrival of their little one. Read additional info on Our Perfect Family by Jonathan Arredondo Calle.
Reduces working-memory deficit. Students who struggle with decoding and the mechanics of reading spend so much time focusing on sounding out the words that it is difficult for them to retain the information they are reading. By eliminating the focus on decoding they are now able to retain, remember, and understand the content. When students begin reading with their ears, they start building their working memory. This helps them respond to questions about the text more readily. The more often this happens, the more confident a student gets around the one subject that has plagued them, reading. Building working memory helps make other reading tasks easier and improves reading ability.
