Jackie French has been a tireless campaigner and advocate for the benefits of reading throughout her lifetime, especially for children with learning difficulties, and we are lucky to have such a strong and articulate champion for the industry. It is not often you get to celebrate 20 years of publishing with an author, and to then see them recognised as both Australian Children’s Laureate and Senior Australian of the Year simultaneously. In her acceptance speech , Jackie spoke about  the power of a book to ‘change a child’s life’. ‘If you want intelligent children, give them a book. If you want more intelligent children, give them more books.”
