Review: I Remember

I Remember is a gorgeous story about memories, as an elderly woman recalls the family camping trips of her childhood.

Set in the Geraldton area of Western Australia, Joanne Crawford’s text is simple and yet profound. It’s written in such a way that makes you feel you’ve been there; that you’ve experienced the memories for yourself.

Visually Kerry Ann Jordinson exquisitely portrays the landscape through illustration. Using soft pastel and a stunning colour pallet, children will appreciate each illustration as the story unfolds.

I Remember encourages children to stop and take in the details; to breathe in the smells; to listen to the sounds, and to begin to understand that it’s the simple things in life that are the most meaningful and leave a lasting impression that can be remembered for a lifetime.
I Remember is a celebration of Australian traditions, the importance of story telling, and of childhood and is sure to enjoyed read after read.
