Celebrating Australia

Proud to be Australian

These are some of the books we will be reading as a family over the next 2 weeks, celebrating our Country and remembering those who gave their lives for our freedom.  

Totally enjoyed this afternoon singing and teaching the kids 'Waltzing Matilda', haven't sung that for years!  I have been very slack not teaching a lot over the years re: Australian History, however was very surprised my daughter knew about Simpson and his donkey.  Alkira was able to retell all of us about Simpson and his donkey from a book that she read last year.  Reading is such a wonderful love to give our children, books can fill them with wonder of the world around us, distress at what war can do to nations and books can also give them hope, faith and pure joy.  LOVE BOOKS.
