Author Spotlight — Skye Hughes

Author Spotlight — Skye Hughes

Meet author Skye Hughes as she discusses her sensitive and timely picture book We’re All in this Together.

The book discusses the changes brought to home and school life by the pandemic of 2020. Children will identify with the situations described and realise there is strength in facing these disruptions together. It provides a perfect vehicle for discussions with teachers, parents and other carers.

Read about Skye’s inspiration for writing the book and about her writing process.

Read the story to your children and discuss Skye’s insights into the writing process. Use Skye’s story to inspire writing of their own. They may like to write about their own experiences related to the virus. Their stories will become part of their own personal history as well as our collective history.
