Many of the Exhibitions on the AACLAP homepage provide resources that are suitable for upper primary and secondary school students as well as research students. This Exhibition draws together picture books that deal with issues related to Asian-Australian themes which will appeal to younger children. However, some of the picture books have more written text than usual for picture books so may be better suited to 7 and 8 year olds rather than 5 and 6 year olds.

'Fang Fang is a young girl who migrated to Australia from China with her parents when she was little. Her desire to be as Australian as her classmates brings her into conflict with her mother, who is anxious that Fang Fang does not lose her cultural heritage.
