Publisher's synopsis

Come Over To My House is a delightful picture book that explores the home lives of children and parents who are Deaf or disabled. Co-written by disability advocate Eliza Hull and Australian Children’s Laureate Sally Rippin, the inclusive rhyming text authentically explores the characters’ various disabilities.

A cast of friendly characters invite friends over for a play – there’s fun to be had, food to eat and families to meet!

Come over to my house. Come over and play!
I’ll show you around, you can stay the whole day.
We’ll swing on the swing-set and splash in the pool.
Then I’ll race you inside where my bedroom is cool.

Featuring a gorgeous die-cut cover, bright illustrations and a diverse cast, this is a must-read for all families.
