Comments about Why I Love Australia:
A beautiful piece of Australiana. The story and illustrations are based on Indigenous Australian (Aboriginal) perspectives and view of Australia. The book is mostly about the illustrations but these are accompanied by brief poetic lines that describe the scenes and their significance.
