“This resource has a wonderful variety of pictures, poetry and solid information covering the arrival of the Europeans through the first century of European settlement.  The added impact of the resource is that it has an almost colonial look about the pages ... all the illustrations are hand drawn and have a delightful direct link with the text.”

Janette’s PICTURES & STORIES of AUSTRALIAN HISTORY

These resources are all about sharing the fascinating story of Australian History with your children.  Every child should know the story of their own special country and this set of PICTURES and book of STORIES have been designed so that children will ENJOY doing just that!  Travel back in time to meet the characters, the adventurers; to see the places and learn the lessons of the past right here, to share together!

THE PICTURES ... were inspired by a desire to share Australian history with my own children and a need for such a resource.  I have researched, sourced, designed and illustrated over 140 black & white pictures from historical works to create timeline figures or scenes from our past. The first 100 years.  Then composed rhymes and/or notes to go with each to tell the story.  The 35 pages when purchased are fully reproducible for colouring, enlarging, reading and learning within the home or classroom at the appropriate price (click on SAMPLE PAGES/PICTURES at top of screen).  The set of pictures is available to purchase in either in paper copy or on CD! ...... On CD you can view, enlarge and print from your computer. 


THE BOOK ...The Pictures go with the book, the book tells you which picture to have ready to look at and read together (each one has a rhyme or notes).  Then, while you are reading that chapter of the book aloud, the children can colour and perhaps add to their very own Australian History Journals (or notebooks), along with their own answers to the questions, thoughts, drawings and observations (these will come up along the way).  [Or, if you would prefer something more simple for your youngest, they could just pin the coloured pictures along a wall as a kind of timeline.]  The resource is designed so that children can keep their hands busy while you read but at the same time the book is not 'dumbed down' at all.  It is a series of stories, and you can share as you go, with the children learning many things along with the history; eg new vocabulary, sciences like our Australian botany and geography with the explorers etc etc.  The book goes with over half the set of Pictures.  ...


This BIG A4 sized book is a journey through Australian history.  You will be travelling back in time discovering the stories, the people, the happenings and the places, of early colonial Australia ... the 'Aborigines and the Colonies' ...  Just as 'Janette's Pictures of Australian History', (the first 100 years) were drawn after historical works, these stories are written after the actual journals and diaries of the people of the day, to take you back to where and when it all happened.  Read and experience Australia as she once was, in their shoes, so to speak!  Re-discover your country, find out what really happened.  Not just the cold hard facts but the stories behind them, get to know Australia and her history a great deal better.  What happened where?  Who did what, when?  How our culture grew?  What life was like and how much has changed!  The discoveries, the many Aboriginal people, all over the land; meeting the Maori people too and experiencing New Zealand.  The hard journeys across Australia, the struggles; building the colonies, how the country was run; the dramas, the triumphs, the tragedies, the humour too; and those things that grew out of it all, to make Australia, Australian.  

 

**The book comes with 3 NEW ADDITIONAL PAGES of PICTURES AS WELL, mainly relating to the new chapters on New Zealand!**  The book also has questions, discussions and activities to choose from for reinforcement.


SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS:  Now parents, children and educators can share this subject together, learning in an enjoyable way.  The simple idea is to follow the book along, it has instructions for reading the Pictures together, then colouring whilst sharing the stories.  These resources are packed with information and details, questions, discussions, imaginings and are suitable for all ages.  WARNING: I suggest that teachers pre-read before sharing with younger or more sensitive children, ‘Australia’ began as a series of penal colonies and life was rough!


Janette’s Pictures and stories have an engaging and entertaining style to open children’s minds and help them enjoy learning.  As well they are multisensory, the pictures give the children something VISUAL; through the colouring and cutting using the sense of TOUCH, and through reading aloud you engage the sense of LISTENING also.  This all makes an extremely effective learning tool and one which provides KEYS to unlock the learner’s memory.

“... My 9 year old likes to just read or browse through your pictures when it is not even school time.  Sometimes he copies the drawings in his sketch book.  It is so wonderful to have these available about Australian history for notebook projects and for our timeline books....”

I finally received your CD and Australian History book in my hands today after waiting for my Mum to gather other materials to send to me and I have spent all afternoon browsing through it all and I am STUNNED...the amount of work you have put into the drawings, rhymes, stories, activities and crafts is staggering and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for putting such excellent work into this history course.  I can't wait to start.  I had no idea that there would be activities, questions, crafts and internet links....thank you, thank you, thank you for your awesome time and effort and for making it available to a homeschooling Aussie mom all the way over in Texas.

“These are beautiful, so unique and worth every cent and more.  Thank you for offering your work to us!  I can’t wait to use these with my daughters.” Victoria

Dear Janette,


Thank you so much for such wonderful looking products.  The downloads were successful and the Book looks great on the iPad.  It will be perfect for travel and teaching on the go.  The pictures are beautiful and I will just print the pages I need to complement the chapters from the book.  I am also going to use these with Language Lessons from Australian History.  I am just so thrilled to have found quality Australian products.


Blessings to you,

“Just received my book!! Wow!!  I like it a lot, can’t wait to start.  You have done a wonderful job, I can NOT begin to know how long that must have taken you to get the work to this wonderful point. Well done, and I hope that you have enough energy left in you to get Part 2 out as well.  No pressure, but I am looking forward to seeing part 2 whenever you finish it.  Be encouraged!! May God continue to help and guide you through it.

Thank you and God bless you for making our job SO must easier.

“... I was completely blown away when I received your new Australian History book in the post!!  I had no idea you had created such an amazing book.  Congratulations!  I have to say that it is up there with Story of the World, if not better.

I wish you every success in getting this book out there as it will be sure to become a homeschool staple.

Hi Janette,

 

Just thought I'd let you know we received the CD and Narations.  We printed off the pictures on 110gsm drawing paper which was very succesful.  We may even bind it into a book as well!  My husband really liked them and when I explained how we were going to use them to colour and paste on a timeline for our family Australian History lessons he was impressed and said "I wish I could have have learnt about Australian History like this instead of our boring lessons".  So I just thought I'd let you know that I now have four children interested in our Australian heritage.

 

My oldest daughter, 11, has already claimed some of the book marks and can't wait to learn about the characters on them.

 

I'm pleased I went with the CD, now I have both a hard copy and the CD.

Just wanted to send my thanks for the beautiful book & disc that l received in the mail. What a beautiful collection. 

l am amazed at how you found the time for it all, but we are looking forward to making our way through it all.  Many thanks, Julie

Thank you so much for the wonderful book, pictures CD and book marks you sent.  I’m astonished at the amount of content/detail in the book and pictures – you have obviously put a lot of work into bringing it all together.  Congratulations on producing such an amazing resource! 
 
My hubby has been picking up the book and reading it at every opportunity this weekend.  His comment to me this evening was ‘so when is the second volume going to be available’ (no pressure haha).
 
Thanks again

We are enjoying OUR AUSTRALIAN STORY so far.  I am reading it aloud to our 5, 7, 10 and 12 year olds.  Not sure how much our 5yo is picking up but she happily listens and colours with the others.  Our 12yo DS asked me what I was going to do with the book when we had finished it.  I said we would put it on the shelf with the rest of our Aussie books and I asked him why he asked.  He said he wanted to keep it for himself, as it was very interesting!

Thank you so much for the Book and Pictures! They look GREAT, and we are starting today (they arrived this morning). The boys are enthused to colour and create Lapbooks, which calls for thanks to you for your helpful words. 
I can see that the pictures will give them a picture in their minds, so essential with regards to things gone by, that we can no longer see, or even imagine. The Captions will have the same effect. We often read something and wish we had a picture or map
right in front of us to visualise the place or thing. My 10 year old opened the book and began to question whether Dodos ever existed, so we really must begin reading!!!

.....as we are getting into the Book and Pictures, the boys are LOVING it all. It IS infectious!

Dear Janette

My boys and I have had a wonderful journey through Australian History using your Beautiful pictures and narratives. A very BIG THANK YOU. A brilliant job. A real Blessing for another tired homeschooling mum. I don’t know how you do it.                                 Caron McCoy
