Older than flickering stars.

In Respect, the first book in Magabala’s Our Place series – the aim of which is to welcome children to Aboriginal culture Muir and Lawson’s sparse text is offset by Kennedy’s luminous images, which come alive on the page.’’ – Hannah Gardiner, Books+Publishing

This is my world
By Lonely Planet kids
If you were asked to tell someone on the other side of the world about yourself, where would you start?
Perhaps you’d mention your favourite hobbies, the pranks you play on your family, or what you want to be when you grow up. Would you include a selfie or a family photo? A cute snap of your puppy or that awesome shot of you playing your favourite sport?
Discover what it’s like to live in an orphanage in Zambezi, by a remote fjord in Greenland, on a cattle ranch in Australia, high up in the Himalaya mountains in Nepal, at an eco-lodge in Costa Rica, and much more.
