As a teacher, she has shown children the magic of books through reading the visual story and then the text story. Kids have written to and drawn pictures for authors and illustrators to show how their books affect them.


Dr June Perkins is a Brisbane-based poet, and children's author, of Indigenous Papua New Guinean and Australian background, raised in Tasmania by Baha'i parents. She utilises multi-arts and multicultural stories to inspire an enriched sense of belonging and compassion. She promotes diversity in the Australian, Pasifika and Baha'i literary landscapes.
