Come Over to My House

Eliza Hull, Sally Rippin, Daniel Gray-Barnett (illus.)

Come Over To My House is a delightful picture book that explores the home lives of children and parents who are Deaf or disabled. Co-written by disability advocate Eliza Hull and bestselling author Sally Rippin, the inclusive rhyming text authentically explores the characters’ various disabilities.     

A cast of friendly characters invite friends over for a play - there’s fun to be had, food to eat and families to meet!     

Come over to my house. Come over and play!
I’ll show you around, you can stay the whole day. 
We’ll swing on the swing-set and splash in the pool. 
Then I’ll race you inside where my bedroom is cool.

Featuring a gorgeous die-cut cover, bright illustrations and a diverse cast, this is a must-read for all families.

Review

I have been waiting for years for a book like Come Over to My House. On every page you’re invited to someone’s house to play, eat, dance, read or any other number of exciting activities. Except each house does things a little differently: one household talks with their hands (but writing things down is fine too if you don’t know Auslan); another has a perfect-sized treehouse that the perfect-sized dad with dwarfism can climb into and have fun. Every household is unique, and importantly, it’s the visitors who adapt to suit the physical, neurodivergent or intellectual disabilities of those who live there.

Come Over to My House is an excellent way to start conversations with children about how people with disabilities might do things differently, and I love Eliza Hull and Sally Rippin for taking the onus off kids living with disabilities to have to conduct that conversation over and over. Highly recommended for all children ages 3+.
