The Art in Country: A Treasury for Children
Gorges that plummet into serpentine shadows...
Cloaks of white that drape the rocky crags of snowy mountains...
In this magnificent celebration of country, Bronwyn Bancroft uses colours, shapes, patterns and words to explore the awe-inspiring beauty of the Australian continent, and to express the depth of her feelings for it.
The Art in Country: A Treasury for Children is an essential addition to any young Australian's library, and a perfect introduction to the many wonders that this country has to offer. This is a treasury to be cherished by all who love this land.
For Ages: 3+ years old
