Welcome to all the wise owls!
The teachers, parents, librarians, administrators, speech therapists and
anyone else who builds confidence in young readers.
Judith’s passion for developing children’s learning of phonics and phonemic awareness has resulted in wonderfully written and illustrated books that highlight the complexities of our written English. Apart from fostering phonics and phonemic awareness the stories also develop imagination, language and vocabulary in young readers.
We were thrilled to have Judith presenting at the 2021 Fish Creek Children’s Literature Festival where she gave both a presentation and workshop that were stimulating and extremely well received by her audience.

The EE in the Deep Blue Sea is written by Judith Barker and beautifully illustrated by Janie Frith. The rich colours and vibrant use of multimedia enhance the magical experience. The book explores many undersea and reef environments and introduces children to twenty of the creatures that live there. It is a great book to not only educate, but also show children enchanting illustrations about the oceans that surround our beautiful island nation.
