The Gum Family Finds Home

Author: Tania McCartney

Illustrator: Christina Booth

Publisher: NLA Publishing

Three copies to give away

The Gum Family Finds Home is a delightful Australian story about home and family and a celebration of the stunning Australian landscape and its flora and fauna.

Join the Gum family of koalas, who hitch up their caravan and set off in search of the perfect home. Together with the Gum family, children will explore the sheer variety and imposing grandeur of the Australian geological landscape, from Uluru to King’s Canyon, from gorges and limestone pillars to precariously placed boulders and sweeping plains. Searching for that perfect home, they learn the heart-warming truth that the best home is the one you create for yourself among family and friends.

Parents, friends, carers and teachers will enjoy the age old premise that ‘home is where your heart is’ and smile as children try to figure out where the Gums will decide to live. At the back of the book, travel the country again through photographs of locations from the story and learn fascinating facts about their formation and history.

An environmental tale for early childhood and lower primary readers that shows how animals are affected by rubbish left in their habitat by humans. Ambelin Kwaymullina’s illustrations are an explosion of colour and cleverly show the perils faced by our native animals. When the animals work as a team to come up with ways to look after the bush, they decide to ask the humans to reduce, recycle and use rubbish bins. But it is Benny Bungarra who has the bright idea of a big bush clean-up so the animals can also help look after the bush.
