Picture Books with CD's

'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.
