Global Goals Book Club: Goal 10, Reduced Inequalities

The newest addition to the Travellers’ Tales series by Richard O’Neill is The Lost Homework. Sonny spends a very busy weekend helping his local community and fellow Travellers with a variety of interesting tasks. When Sunday evening comes around Sonny realises, he has lost his homework! What will his teacher say?! This lovely story highlights the importance of skills learned outside of traditional classrooms and presents a unique perspective that can only be given authentically by an author that grew up in a community just like Sonny’s.
