An Aussie Year is a picture book bursting with national pride. It is a snapshot of who we are as a nation, and covers our modern-day culture, lifestyle and traditions.
Its pages feature trailing, meandering text, dates, and gorgeous illustrations showing our five Aussie children at play, at school, at home, and enjoying their parts of Australia — from the tropical north to our rugged west and beautiful Tassie.
