Capturing Quintessential Australia. Available now.
Australia is an ancient island continent of contrasts and extremes, from the desiccated deserts of the inland to lush tropical rainforests, from modern cities to isolated outback communities, from snow-covered mountains to snow-white beaches.
The human story of Australia is one of enterprise and perseverance that stretches back some 60,000 years in the history of Indigenous Australians. The convicts and colonists of the 19th century came from all over the world and laid the foundations of multiculturalism — a feature of today’s Australia.
This fun series of insect story books is a welcome addition to Rebecca Johnson’s hugely successful story book range. Each witty and engaging story instructs children about the life stages of various native insects. New features include: diagrams of the insect’s life cycle, a glossary of tricky and technical terms and Australian primary science curriculum links.
