Synopsis

Emus Under the Bed by Leann J. Edwards

On Saturdays I visit Auntie Dollo. 'What would you like to do today?' she says. 'Do you want to help me make some feather flowers?' A vibrant story about connecting with culture and family. This book was produced through the Emerging Indigenous Picture Book Mentoring Project, a joint initiative between The Little Big Book Club and Allen & Unwin, assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
