            This non-fiction picture book will cover the history of the land masses that we know as Southeast Asia and will be written by the highly respected and awarded historical fiction author and Children's Laureate, Jackie French, and ANU academic, Professor Virginia Hooker and complim...ented with the beautiful artwork of Mark Wilson. Southeast Asia is our neighbour, but to many it is almost unknown beyond holiday destinations in Bali or Bangkok.It is an essential part of our curriculum, but with almost no material to support it. Even those who know its modern geography don't know its history. At most, Southeast Asia is seen as individual countries.And yet it's not. the history of Southeast Asia and Australia is intertwined. We are linked by the winds and great tides that bring our weather; by the seas that brought conquerors, or those who sailed here and stayed. A volcano in Indonesia may bring down planes in Perth, or cause a drought in tasmania.This is the story of the region, from the first footstep, more than 60,000 years ago, to the ASEAN conference of 2015.Divided into sections, the book will tell the story of one land, one era of history, but also how that past and place isl linked to us all. It is a book that will hopefully entice both children and adults to seek more in the extensive notes and materials that will support the book, but will also be read for its own beauty and insight into the region where we live, but do not know. the authors hope that their ties within the region will mean the book is sold to countries in the region. As the title says, it is about us all.

            Bruce Pascoe has collected a swathe of literary awards for Dark Emu and now he has brought together the research and compelling first person accounts in a book for younger readers. Using the accounts of early European explorers, colonists and farmers, Bruce Pascoe compellingly ar...gues for a reconsideration of the hunter-gatherer label for pre-colonial Aboriginal Australians. He allows the reader to see Australia as it was before Europeans arrived - a land of cultivated farming areas, productive fisheries, permanent homes, and an understanding of the environment and its natural resources that supported thriving villages across the continent. Young Dark Emu - A Truer History asks young readers to consider a different version of Australia's history pre-European colonisation.

            Every year there are special days when we remember all those who have fought in the past to keep Australia free and those who still fight today to keep us safe. On 25 April - Anzac Day - and on 11 November - Remembrance Day - we stop to think about those people and how much they ...have done for us. Anzac Day reminds us that, as Australians, we are proud of the Anzac spirit which has helped shape our traditions, our culture, and who we are. On Remembrance Day we honour all those who gave up so much for their country, especially those who lost their lives. Australia Remembers presents a detailed explanation of the origins and traditions of Anzac Day and Remembrance Day, exploring both their connections and significance to young Australians today. The colourful traditions and symbols of these special days are described in language that is easily accessible to younger readers, helping them to understand what these mean and how important it is to remember those Australians who have fought for their country and those who keep us safe today. Australia Remembers is designed to ensure that the next generation shares the history and traditions of these important occasions.
