Industry Reviews
A is for Australia is a good reminder that there are plenty of natural and man-made sights to enjoy without a passport. Frane Lessac's picture book is not just a selection of pretty images but a 'factastic tour'. -- Thuy On * Books+Publishing *
This is a delightful picture book that the whole family will be able to get into. -- Practical Parenting * Practical Parenting *
A is for Australia captures the visual diversity of our beautiful country. It is the perfect book to share with family and friends overseas -- Susan Whelan * Kids' Book Review *
This book is a joy to look at, read and learn from. -- Dale Harcombe * Read and Write with Dale *
It is perfect for families to share (and create) their own memories and experiences, and for primary school children to utilise for their Australian studies. -- Boomerang Books Blog * Boomerang Books Blog *
I really appreciated the thoughtful choice of facts for each topic -- Susan Stephenson * Book Chook *
The rich and colourful gouache illustrations extend the text with native plants and animals and lots of visual details. Recommended. -- Margaret Hamilton * Pinerolo Newsletter *
The hero of this informative picture book is Lessac's brightly coloured, naive illustrations, which bring each place to life, showcasing not just their topography and flora and fauna, but also a bevy of exuberant people enjoying what each destination has to offer. This is an excellent contribution to both the alphabet genre and to picture books about Australia's many natural and man-made attractions. -- Stephanie Owen Reeder * Sydney Morning Herald *
I am tempted to describe A is for Australia as an alphabetical extravaganza, but while Frane Lessac's bold illustrations and attention to detail certainly are extravagant, she has also created a guide to Australia - its uniqueness and diversity - in a way that makes the information accessible to all readers, regardless of age -- Creative Kids Tales * Creative Kids Tales *
Australian picture books feature -- Oh Creative Day * Oh Creative Day *
Craft Activity -- Oh Creative Day * Oh Creative Day *
Australia Day List -- Kids' Book Review * Kids' Book Review *
This book will make enjoyable reading for a global audience of all ages with its bright, colourful illustrations and range of information presented. * Magpies Magazine *
