“This is a clever example of an interactive book with no technology necessary. An Aussie Year will make children want to plan and share their own stories and adventures.”
An Aussie Year has made the shortlist for West Australian Young Readers’ Book Award 2016 in the category of Best Picture Book.
The Award operates by inviting young readers to nominate, through their libraries, books that they have enjoyed. These nominations are then considered by the WAYRBA committee.
We love this book and it is good to know that the audience for whom they were written loves them too.
