Happy Australia Day!

In honor of our sweet friends Rob, Andrea, Matt and  Bella and you Australian blog readers, we will be celebrating Australia Day here in America with a couple of our favorite Aussie Books and some delicious ANZAC Biscuits.

We love, Koala Lou by Mem Fox and Pamela Lofts.


This book is a wonderful reminder for children that they do not need to do anything to earn their mother’s love.  A very sweet story with beautiful and expressive  illustrations!

Hear Mem Fox read Koala Lou,  here.

Another good book is Draw Aussie Animals by Marion & Steve Isham.


The book includes simple illustrations for drawing 14 extinct Australian animals.  You can find lots of free activity pages at their website. Your kids can draw this Tasmanian Devil, similar to one in Isham’s book.

Have a happy day!
