A great introduction to the geography of Australia


A wonderful book filled with bright colourful drawings of places around Australia. I used this book to introduce my six year old to the geography of Australia. She loved it and learnt many new places around Australia. She also learnt the names of the States. We incorporated it into our homeschooling curriculum - Charlotte Mason Ambleside Preschool. I use short Youtube videos with each letter, one letter per week.


Informative in a colorful way


Provokes discussion



Wonderful book!


I read this book to my preschool children but it is also suitable for older children. The illustrations are beautiful. A great informative book about Australia.
