Owen was just like any other boy or girl of his age. He was curious, his fingers liked to strum, and he loved to jump. He dreamed about strumming his ukulele and singing. He loved going to school and he found math interesting because he got to explore numbers. He loved science because he learned how his body worked. His stories came alive when he learned English. Owen's voice came out in bits and bobs when he read aloud in class but the sounds and the words came out right when he sang. Every time he spoke in class his classmates laughed at him. How does his teacher encourage him and what plan do they both hatch together so his classmates no longer tease him?
The Boy Who Talks in Bits and Bobs by Eva Wong Nava is a beautiful story that will make children believe that everything is possible with the right attitude. Debasmita Dasgupta brings the concept alive and conveys positive messages in her wonderful illustrations that give a good pace and movement to the story and its scenes. It is a perfect storybook for tutors to read out in class or use for their storytelling sessions to encourage children to overcome their disabilities and make them confident. Many children will be able to connect with Owen and what he is going through. This book is a perfect tool for everyone to understand that nothing is impossible where there is patience, kindness, and understanding.
