Win a copy of Talking is Not My Thing!

Rose Robbins' latest picture book is about the importance of non-verbal communication for children. Here's how you can get your hands on your very own copy

"We all know that human interaction is so much more than words. We use non-verbal communication everyday, in our body language, our facial expressions, and even GIFS on social media." - Rose Robbins, author and illustrator

It's time for two siblings to come in from the garden where they've been playing to have their dinner, read a story and get ready for bed. One of the siblings is non-verbal, meaning they don't speak, but that doesn't mean they can't communicate - in fact, there are a whole number of different ways to share thoughts and feelings without ever having to talk! 

Rose Robbins' latest book is a lovely celebration of diversity and neurodiversity, and the simple message and beautiful bold illustrations mean it's perfect to share with any child.
