CHILDREN’S BOOKLIST

 

CHILDREN’S BOOKLIST

 

This list is simply one that I have collected and used to write my Pictures at the end of the document there is also an adult list for your interest afterwards. The books listed here with an asterisk* are novels/stories/narratives of Australian history and those with ** are picture/story books for younger children. The out of print ones can often be found at second hand book shops or bookfairs. The in print ones are available through good book stores/homeschool suppliers. The rest of the books are more factually worded. As you can see from the reference to volume numbers, some of these books are part of series that are found in the Australian History section at the library. The list also gives you a start at looking for great series of books such as the Southern Cross series by Cassell Australia Ltd and The Australian’s in History Series by William Collins.
