Synopsis

Cambridge Junior History: Australia and its People by Philip Cummins

Australia and its Peoples covers the period from the earliest inhabitants of Australia, over 40,000 years ago, to 1900. It explores the significant features of the various indigenous societies that have existed over this time, paying particular attention to everyday life, customs and beliefs, art and cultural expression, and economic and technological features such as trade and land management. Australia and its Peoples also looks at the arrival of the white colonists, the process of colonisation and its legacy for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians, and explores the question of an 'Australian identity'. The book is full colour throughout, draws on a wide range of sources and contains learning outcomes and focus issues. The activities will help to build students' historical skills while ensuring that history remains fun!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
