My Place by Nadia Wheatley and Donna Rawlins.
There are two copies of this beautiful book in the Little Library of Rescued Books, one softback and one hard cover. This picture book is best poured over than read aloud. I have purchased the DVD series that is based on the book and will be using it when we do our Australian history units throughout the year. The book gives a unique and intimate history of Australia and family life and features descriptive text, maps and illustrations. The story starts in 1988 and works its way backwards through time until the time of invasion in 1788 telling the history of one particular place through the generations of children who lived there.
