My Australian Alphabet by Ochre Lawson
Published by Windy Hollows Books
In this wonderful alphabet book, we travel along learning letters that correspond uniquely to Australian plants and animals.
With stunning illustrations that almost fill the page, I was excited at each turn, to find out which animal or plant would be depicted next. There were the usual favourites like Koala and Wallaby, but also a couple I was not familiar with, like the Quoll and the Numbat.
I read this with my 3 year old who is particularly taken with Australian animals at the moment and obsessed with all things alphabet, and this combination was a firm hit.
I believe this would make an excellent addition to Australian classrooms, as the author clearly imparts a love for the diverse and unique animals and plants of our great nation.
