Jack L. Robertsabout this book: Help your kids EXPLORE THE WORLD -- AUSTRALIA
A Kid's Guide to Australia is one in a series of books for young readers (ages 8-12) about countries and cultures around the world, published by Curious Kids Press. Each colorful, easy-to-read book (8 ½ x 11) features dozens of photographs, maps, fun "Did You Know" facts, and more – all designed to introduce young explorers to the country, the people, and their culture. A Kid's Guide to Australia covers topics such as the first European settlers, the Australia outback, the curious Australian animals (including the Tasmanian devil), the Aboriginal peoples, and much more. Designed primarily for recreational, high-interest reading, the informational text is also a great resource for students to use to research world geography topics and writing assignments. Other books in the "A Kid's Guide to..." series focus on Ancient Egypt, China, Costa Rica, England, France, Kenya (including a look at amazing African wildlife), and Thailand. Jack L. Roberts, founder of Curious Kids Press, is a former longtime editor at Scholastic Inc and Children's Television Workshop (now Sesame Workshop), and author of dozens of nonfiction titles for kids of all ages. "Helping kids expand and enhance their awareness of the world they live in offers enormous satisfaction," he says.
