FROM thousands of submissions, 21 winning artworks were included in the recently released children’s book See Me.

The winners’ illustrations were selected to feature in the published storybook for Therapy Focus’s 13th annual Help a Child Grow art competition as part of National Children’s Book Week.

Participating students created artwork to illustrate the pages of the book, written by accomplished Australian writer Tracey Defty-Rashid.

See Me aims to educate children about disability and encourage greater understanding of peers with special needs.

The rhyming narrative features characters with disabilities and encourages young readers to celebrate the unique talents of every individual.

The book was unveiled at Perth Town Hall on August 27.

A complimentary copy of See Me will be provided to every primary school in WA and is also available for purchase from the Therapy Focus website.
