This sumptuously illustrated book invites children to closely observe the birds, plants, and animals that inhabit the unique environment of Kakadu, in the northern territory of Australia, by presenting the six Aboriginal seasons and their characteristics. Offering a holistic approach to the climate and life in Kakadu, it emphasises making children feel part of the landscape. This book also explores educational themes including seasons in the tropics, stories from the land, cultural and indigenous studies, language studies, and art, with detailed teachers' notes for each.
