How could you not love Australia’s billowing grasslands, the rocky crags of snowy mountains, the twisted trees and sandy soil? Enjoy the rich colours and wonderful shapes in Bronwyn Bancroft’s magnificent celebration of country with the children.
Which are their favourite pictures? What colours and shapes do they like? Which plants grow in this landscape and which animals live there? Which of the landscapes from the book can you see when you go outside? How do they differ from the pictures in the book? Children could paint their favourite landscape. Why do you love Australia?
With our book recommendations, we want to spark an interest in children to discover STEM in their everyday lives. Most books go beyond the obvious STEM connections and can be a great starting point for exploring children’s questions and ideas further.
