I LOVE READING HISTORY! Especially, our own history in this special country we call home, Australia – from the very first glimmerings of a continent billions of years ago to the present day – through all our glorious and inglorious times, through fascinating pre-history and history.
I celebrate every good book that comes out for Aussie children about Australia’s past.
Tomorrow, help me welcome my good friend and Aussie author, Tania McCartney as she blogs about her new picture book, AUSTRALIAN STORY... An Illustrated Timeline. It’s just been released in conjunction with the National Library of Australia in Canberra.
Pop back here tomorrow to read Tania’s fabulous notes on how to use this book as a valuable discovery resource for young children.
