I know I am the one always recommending book to you, but this time I need you to suggest books to me. I have been a bit undecided about what we were going to study next and have been taking the time to do some catch-up on regular school work. But I think I have a plan. It makes sense to continue with our geography theme and move from the Pacific Ocean and islands on across to Australia. We've never really studied that continent before and I see a whole host of opportunities, but I need a book or books. It works really well for us to base our studies off of what we are reading, either fiction or non-fiction, but I need titles!
So, what books do you know of that are 1) appropriate for many ages, 2) have to do with Australia (either past or present) and 3) are good reads? That's not too tall an order is it? I know I have quite a few Australian readers of this blog... what would you recommend? What parts of Australia do you think are important to learn about? In my experience, Australia is a continent much ignored in our part of the world unless we happen to learning about kangaroos or koala bears.
We're ready to begin!
