In This Is Home, much-loved
author Jackie French has gathered a poem for every child and every mood. What
do you feel like doing today? Sit beside a bush campfire with Oodgeroo
Noonuccal, watch people going by with Henry Lawson, float away with Alison
Lester, learn to read with Andy Griffiths or be brave with Shaun Tan.
Ideal for sharing with the whole family, this extensively
illustrated edition brings together old favourites and sure-to-be new
favourites in an indispensable addition to children’s bookshelves. From poems
that whisper to poems that roar, from words of tranquillity and heartbreak to
those of the witty and absurd, there is something within these pages to make
everyone feel at home.
