AbstractHistoryArchive Description

An Australian ABC of Animals is a delightful picture book, which can be used to introduce Aboriginal Perspectives to young children. It works on several levels, being both an introduction to the alphabet, and a unique exploration of Australian wildlife—some familiar, others more unusual—as seen through the eyes of an indigenous artist. The book will appeal to young children who are fascinated by the animal world around them. It is also a valuable book for older students examining Aboriginal art. Bancroft’s detailed artwork on each page is a perfect starting point for exploring colours andstyles used by indigenous artists.(Source: Scholastic Australia)
