Age range 9+ Drawing on the impressive collections of the National Library of Australia, this comprehensive book provides children with an interesting and engaging overview of the history of Australia. It covers many of the main events and people in the nation's history. Packed with colourful images and interesting facts, The Big Book of Australian History introduces children to the many people and events that have made Australia what it is today. It also encourages them to think about how Australia has evolved as a nation. This is a book to dip into and savour. Author Peter Macinnis's enthusiastic retelling of Australia's story is infectious. It includes the latest happenings in several areas, such as the election of Scott Morrison as prime minister in 2019, the rise and rise of women in professional cricket and football, and the shining of Australian stars in the Oscars, to mention a few. Among the big events and the great moments that have shaped the country, Macinnis also includes lesser-known, interesting details that bring Australian history to life.
