Australia Illustrated by Tania McCartney
Australia Illustrated is a fantastic reminder of how much we have to enjoy in this diverse and marvellous country. It depicts a kaleidoscope of iconic Aussie places with tantalising colour and cheeky fun. Starting with a few pages of distinctive features that are only found here, the book is then divided into states and showcases their hallmark characteristics. It’s a great starting point for kids to identify the places and things they do know and see how much more there is to experience. Tania McCartney has showcased an impressive array of attributes that make us unique, which also makes this book an ideal gift for tourists and to send overseas as well. Highly recommended for ages 3 and up.
