Every month brings new delights and celebrations in the life of an Aussie kid. Here is a book that celebrates the diversity of Australian childhood month by month with gorgeous illustrations, maps, and more. Come take a look.
An Aussie Year: Twelve Months in the Life of Australian Kids is from author Tania McCartney and illustrator Tina Snerling – two Australian mums who love the vibrant diversity of life in our beautiful country. Through five fun characters – Ned, Lily, Zoe, Kirra, and Matilda young readers learn about the celebrations, traditions, and events that colour the Australian landscape and make being an Aussie true blue beaut!
Each two-page spread is dedicated to one month of the year and filled with gorgeous illustrations displaying things that give us a sense of belonging to our landscape and society. From monumental events such as Australia Day celebrations to the simple moments that Aussie kids know so well – like sticky fingers from icy poles in summertime.
An Aussie Year is a snapshot of who we are as a nation – a vibrant mix of culture and race with a big dose of fun and sun. Both educational and engaging, it is a perfect read for children aged six to ten. Grab your copy of An Aussie Year for $19.99 plus shipping at Exisle Publishing or seek it out in all good book stores.
