              Harry and his father and their dog, Jasper, spend a day together at the beach observing the ever-changing shapes of the clouds. Harry sees different shapes and gives each cloud an emotion. 'That cloud is angry'. 'That cloud is happy'. 'That cloud is lonely'. He watches as the clo...uds slowly drift across the sky and transform. Harry shows us that emotions are like clouds. They change shape and roll by. He feels overwhelmed with a feeling and watches it change and drift out of view. Some days are wonderful, filled with sunlight, inviting us to play outside. Other days are cloudy and stormy ... but the sun will always return to brighten our day!

              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.

              Reece is a very cheeky, curious young boy who loves making NOISE. Today he's making music. There are lots of interesting clangs, bangs and thumps coming from his room as his playing gets more and more vigorous. His mother's requests for him to be quieter only seem to make him lou...der and louder. As his exuberance for his playing grows, so does his mothers exasperation! Will she ever get any peace? The simple rhythmic text combined with delightful illustrations remind us of the power of learning through play and exploration. Kids will love making the lively sounds, and parents and carers will relate to the challenge of being able to enjoy some quiet; especially when there are instruments at play!

Hadamar is the story of Ingrid Marchand, a mixed race girl, growing up as the Nazis rise to power and Hitler's barbaric racial policies come into force. With her skin the wr...ong colour, and suffering epilepsy, Ingrid is taken to the former mental institution of Hadamar, where she encounters atrocities of the most horrific kind. Every day is a battle to stay alive. In her survival though becomes living testimony to true events that are almost too horrific to be believed. While Ingrid's colour has always ostracised her in the community, the rise of Adolf Hitler increases the level of hatred and prejudice to a new, frightening level. At school, Ingrid and her Jewish friend, Sarah, are ridiculed and marked as `different' and `inferior' by their teachers, and bullied mercilessly by the other children. When Ingrid begins to suffer from epileptic fits, she is forcibly sterilised and sent to Hadamar, an institution for the mentally and physically disabled. There she discovers the true horrors of the Nazi regime - she watches as her fellow patients are systematically tortured, gassed and killed.
