  • Features new artwork; revised text; and a letter to My Place readers celebrating the 20th anniversary.
  • New timeline traces the history of the characters in the book as well as the history of Australia, and is right up to date with reference to Australia’s apology to Indigenous Australians.

    Comments about My Place:

    I have used the older publication of this book many, many times in my capacity as a preschool teacher. I feel it encourages children to celebrate the different Cultures that make up our society. I especially like the emphasis placed on the First Nation people of Australia.

        As a teacher I have used this book many times in my classroom in years 3 and 5. It is great to accompany the topic of Australian History .
        I purchased this copy to put on my 18 month old son's bookshelf so we could read it when he is older.

          My 11 year old grandaughter absolutely loves this book and we have both had great fun talking about all the various aspects of the book. It has given her an insight into early Australia and I hope there will be more books forthcoming.
