A planet in crisis. Two children on opposite sides of the world fighting to survive. Global is poignant, powerful and timely.
Twelve-year-old Sami lives with his grandfather in the Bay of Bengal. Each day is a struggle to survive. The sea levels are rising, cyclones hammer the coast sweeping homes into the ocean and grandfather and grandson are in a daily battle with the other fisherman who fight over an ever-depleting catch.

And with plenty of neighbours around in need of help, he is sure he can work his way to riches and the magic box of his dreams…

Andrew Daddo and Jonathan Bentley ensure there’ll be no party poo-pers or dire-rears at toilet time with their irreverent take on potty training.
It’s that time of day again and nature’s calling. The dog circles around for the perfect spot, the bird swoops through the sky with one eye open (watch out, don’t get splat on), the cat is looking for somewhere private. In the jungle, the ferocious lion poops like a King, elephant is giving their best get-out-of-my-way face and the cheeky monkeys are smiling away. Pandas, kangaroos, wombats, fish, frogs, koalas and giraffes, everyone’s wearing their poo face. And you’ve got one too…
A brilliant, helpful and supportive teacher is priceless. It doesn’t matter how old they are either. The young can teach the old, the old can educate the young. And in life there are lots of lessons to learn…walking, riding a bike, watching from the sidelines, leaving home, letting go. Life is full of moments…big, little, happy, sad. And with a good teacher, young or old, everyone can be brave…
Melissa Greenwood uses her Aboriginal spiritual upbringing and the wisdom passed down to her from Elders to craft a dreamy bedtime story that is perfect for curling up under the Giidanyy (moon).
As the sun shines throughout the day,
it warms your cheeks while we play.
As the sun sets in the evening sky,
say, ‘Yaarri Yarraang, goodbye.’

What’s that rumbling in the rainforest? It’s the sound of some very hungry tummies. Gorilla and his pals desperately need some food because hungry animals are not happy ones. Everyone is excited when Gorilla receives a surprise parcel from his buddy Penguin. But what could be inside? Snake, the Monkeys and Hog are sure that it must be something edible. Has Penguin delivered the perfect present…
Imagine a world without colour…what would that be like? There would be no rainbows. The oranges and browns of the autumn leaves…gone. Chameleons wouldn’t be able to change colour. The coral reef would be a lot less colourful. And zebras would be plain old black and white…oh, wait a minute. Colour makes the world go round and a world without colour is no fun at all…
One object, endless possibilities in this tale of discovery, adventure and the joys of the unknown.
Jack and George are not up to much when George spots something unusual in the sky hurtling towards Earth. But what could it be? ‘What’s that?' asks Jack. Neither is sure what the strange thing is and soon it is leading the pair on an epic, shape-shifting adventure and becoming exactly what the friends need as they encounter land, sky and sea. But what actually is the object…
I love Hervé Tullet’s books! Toddlers are always completely captivated by his creations as they press, mix, tip, trace and do whatever else he asks of them on whimsical adventures through his creative world.
Fingers and hands at the ready, it’s time for a dance. A wiggle, a tap and a slide to kick things off. Now some jumping, leaping and bouncing. Keep it elegant! How about some graceful twirling and weaving and skating? Speed it up then slow it down. Almost time for the big finale. That’s it, your done, show’s over. Accept the applause, take a bow and then back to the start to do it all again…
