Bear is delivering a present to Mouse - but how can he get there? Bear takes whatever means of transport he can find: a bike, a lorry, a bus, a trolley - with lots of scrapes and japes along the way. It's going to be a very battered present by the time he reaches Mouse! A beautifully simple text paired with hilarious illustrations by Hannah Shaw, illustrator of The Disgusting Sandwich.
Join in the bear hunt with this fabulous sticker activity book, based on the classic picture book by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury.
From trumpeting like an elephant to howling like a wolf, author-illustrator John Butler delights the very young with this simple, interactive look at different animals and the noises they make. Butler's lavish double-page portraits feature wide-eyed animals in their natural surroundings. The simple text invites young children to mimic the animals' sounds. When all the animals are quiet, readers are encouraged to imitate their animal friends one last time: It's time to gently close your eyes and fall fast asleep.
This edited collection of thirteen original research chapters, authored by leading Australian Aboriginal scholars, uses data from the Longitudinal Study of Indigenous Children (LSIC) to explore how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children are growing up in contemporary Australia.Â The authors provide an overview of the study, its methodological and ethical framework, alongside the cultural, social, educational and family dynamics of Indigenous children's lives. The policy ramifications of the research results are addressed in each chapter as well as critically summarised in the final chapter.Â
To grow up strong, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children need to be strong in health, education, family, culture, identity and in how they see their own place within Australian society. Â The authors of the chapters use Indigenous as well as Western frameworks to guide their analysis. From this standpoint good health is inclusive of social, emotional, spiritual, environmental, and cultural well-being as well as physical health and strong in education refers to cultural and community education as well as academic achievement to non-Indigenous median norms
This book will be of interest to Â students and scholars in the areas of sociology, social work, anthropology and childhood and youth studies, as well as teachers, nurses and other health professionals, social workers and psychologists.
