This is Home

Jackie French, Illustrated by Tania McCartney

Illustration by Bruce Whatley of a man in a traditional chinese farm hat walking down a green hill alongside a lamb. There is one tall tree.

In 'This Is Home', a poem for every child and every mood has been gathered. What do you feel like doing today? Sit beside a bush campfire with Oodgeroo Noonuccal, watch people going by with Henry Lawson, float away with Alison Lester, or be brave with Shaun Tan.

 

Ideal for sharing with the whole family, this extensively illustrated edition brings together old favourites and sure-to-be new favourites in an indispensable addition to children's bookshelves. From poems that whisper to poems that roar, from words of tranquillity and heartbreak to those of the witty and absurd, there is something within these pages to make everyone feel at home.

 

Poets include old favourites like Banjo Patterson, Norman Lindsay, and C.J. Dennis, as well as newer contemporary poets including Libby Hathorn, Janeen Brian, Jackie French, Stephen Whiteside and Christopher Cheng.
