By Gregg Dreise
For ages 3–9
Kindness is like a boomerang – if you throw it often, it comes back often.
Kookoo the Kookaburra is the second heartwarming morality tale – set within the cultural context of the Dreamtime – by Queensland teacher Gregg Dreise. In the same vein as his first book, Silly Birds (Magabala Books, 2014), Dreise tells the story of Kookoo, a kind and well-loved kookaburra who is famous for entertaining the other bush creatures with his funny stories.
This book can be used alongside Storybook Lesson 21 in InitiaLit–1 (lesson available from the MultiLit Members’ Area).
