A is for Australia

Some lesser known locations are featured in this alphabetical tour of Australia. They are all indicated on a map on the first page-opening of the book – A for Australia of course. Children will eventually learn of them in the classroom, on the news or as they travel. At each stop, caption-style information panels tell more about the place and its history and geography. The illustrations are done in naive style, in bright colours with great attention to details. To be browsed over during quiet moments.
