An educational read for early childhood (babies up to Year 2) highlighting where their food and fibre comes from and the significance of farmers. The book is a rhyming tale with illustrations to bring the content to life enabling children to make a connection between various fresh produce and the animals and plants that produce it. Furthermore, the book explores the notion of farm produce being fresh and natural and that farmers care very much for their animals and their land.
Ten women, ten lives. Author Cathie Colless has
gathered together in one collection a series of unsung
stories from the Australian bush, ranging from our
bush nurses to the nation’s invisible farmers.
The women in this book are extraordinary because
they are ordinary, selected not for their ’specialness’
but for their representativeness of women in isolated
communities throughout Australia.
Every town, village and settlement in the country
has their Belindas, Jills and Margarets.
Their story, is our story.
