              Everyone is part of History, and every place has a story as old as the earth.My Place, the classic Australian picture book, is a 'time machine' which takes the reader back into the past. It depicts the history of one particular piece of land in Sydney from 1788 to 1988 through th...e stories of the various children who have lived there. It aims to teach the reader about the history of Australia, about families, settlers, multiculturalism, and the traditional owners of the land. Each child's story covers a decade in time, showing their particular dress, customs and family life. The book also features maps that the successive generations of children have 'drawn' which demonstrate the things that have changed - as well as the things that have remained constant.

But her unlovable behavior never stopped him from loving her. Skinny will open your heart, too: he's the cat who not only refused to give up, but who showed an entire community the miracles that can happen when you practice loving kindness. Skinny reminds us that those who appear to be the least deserving of our compassion and gentleness often need it the most, and that loving those who seem unlovable offers healing for ourselves and for the planet. When we allow ourselves to be touched by this peacekeeper, and are inspired to emulate him, we can spur the ripple effect of kindness out into the world. A funny, captivating tale complete with heart-warming photographs, Skinny the Cat and the Magic of Kindness will take its place with those beloved animal stories that have changed our lives forever.
