Waves is a narrative nonfiction book about the waves of migration to the shores of Australia.
Every journey is perilous, every situation heartbreaking. Every refugee is a person forced by famine or war or fear to leave their home, their families, their friends and all they know. Children have travelled on the waves of migration to the shores of Australia for tens of thousands of years. This book tells some of their stories.
Waves was a Children's Book Council of Australia Notable for the Eve Pownall Award for Information Books in 2019.
The people, the reasons, the journeys, the outcomes, beautifully brought to life by the illustrations of Mark Jackson and Heather Potter.
Touching, reflective and thought-provoking!
Ages 7-10 Years
