              Age range: 4 to 8 Andrew Barton 'Banjo' Paterson was a man of many talents and accomplishments. In his lifetime, he fulfilled the roles of poet, lyricist, journalist, correspondent, speaker, author, clerk, solicitor, ambulance driver, soldier, sportsman, jockey, horse vet, bushma...n, farmer and radio commentator. He was a fine sportsman and loved hunting and fishing, but his great love was horses and the Australian bush. He travelled the world and lived a life of great creative passion, and his story is something that intrigues both adults and children alike, leaving a cultural legacy that continues to this day through his books, his poetry and, of course, Waltzing Matilda. This charming picture book for young children is a celebration of a man who became a world-traveller, hobnobbing with the glittering literati, but who still remained true to his roots, with a lifelong love of the Australian bush-something that called to him throughout his life. Children can join Banjo, his family, dog and neighbourhood friends, as they recount the life of Banjo Paterson with an afternoon of backyard playtime that truly typifies childhood. Illustrations by the award-winning Christina Booth are age-appropriate, active and heart-warming, making this impressive biography accessible to even the youngest of children.

              The Gum Family Finds Home

              Age range: 4+ Kids love rocks. They also love to learn. The Gum Family Finds Home brings these two truths together in a delightful Australian story that introduces concepts of geology to a young audience. But this is not a fact-heavy schoolbook. It is essentially a charming story... about home and family that celebrates the stunning Australian landscape and its flora and fauna. The book's action plays out through a family of koalas, the Gum family, who hitch up their caravan and set off to search for the perfect home. The idea that animals might go travelling to see the sights, or indeed want to find a more better home, creates a link between the reader and the exciting adventures the characters are experiencing. The Gum Family Finds Home uses storytelling to introduce the natural world to children as the Gum family travels the country. The sheer variety and imposing grandeur of Australian geological formations are captured, from Uluru to King's Canyon, from gorges and limestone pillars to precariously placed boulders and sweeping plains. These are introduced in the story through minimal text and lavish illustrations, then extended in a separate section providing accessible information and photographic images. This enables a parent, teacher or older reader to satisfy the further interest in geology that the story is sure to stimulate.
