This stunning picture book takes us into the beauty and grandeur of Australia’s landscape as seen through the eyes of a young Cathy Freeman, whose destiny is to run. Cathy ran barefoot every day across the great ancient land, as her people had done for sixty thousand years before. As Cathy runs, she feels the heartbeat of the land through the very fibres of her being. So when this heartbeat stops and she asks the land what is wrong, young Cathy listens carefully and understands that she has a job to do. She must gather seeds from grasses and plants, and spread those seeds across the land.
Book: An Anthology of Aquatic Life. An Anthology of Aquatic Life is a beautiful collection of knowledge about anything and everything to do with the ocean. It is huge, a whole 224 pages, and filled to the brim with interesting information and descriptions of sea life from the intriguing blue sea dragon to the rather terrifying goblin shark. This book has everything in it about the ocean. I loved the descriptions of the animals and the little facts here and there. One of my favourite animals featured is the rainbow-coloured scale worm, which Hume has suggested should be called something more suitable like ‘disco glittersnapper’ or ‘rainbow ravager’.

Readers review: Our family is also expecting a baby and this was the perfect book for us to read to them! They loved that the entire family was involved, so similar to our own. I highly recommend to any family awaiting the arrival of their little one. See even more info on Our Perfect Family by Jonathan Arredondo-Calle.
Reduces working-memory deficit. Students who struggle with decoding and the mechanics of reading spend so much time focusing on sounding out the words that it is difficult for them to retain the information they are reading. By eliminating the focus on decoding they are now able to retain, remember, and understand the content. When students begin reading with their ears, they start building their working memory. This helps them respond to questions about the text more readily. The more often this happens, the more confident a student gets around the one subject that has plagued them, reading. Building working memory helps make other reading tasks easier and improves reading ability.
