The Gum Family Finds Home is a delightful Australian story about home
and family and a celebration of the stunning Australian landscape and
its flora and fauna.
Join the Gum family of koalas, who hitch
up their caravan and set off in search of the perfect home. Together
with the Gum family, children will explore the sheer variety and
imposing grandeur of the Australian geological landscape, from Uluru to
King's Canyon, from gorges and limestone pillars to precariously placed
boulders and sweeping plains. Searching for that perfect home, they
learn the heart-warming truth that the best home is the one you create
for yourself among family and friends.
Parents, friends, carers
and teachers will enjoy the age-old premise that 'home is where your
heart is' and smile as children try to figure out where the Gums will
decide to live. At the back of the book, travel the country again
through photographs of locations from the story and learn fascinating
facts about their formation and history.
