By Aunty Patsy Cameron
Illustrated by Lisa Kennedy
For ages 3–9
In this delightful children’s picture book, Aunty Patsy Cameron generously shares the stories and traditions from her family’s seasonal island life in Tasmania. With evocative text and stunning illustrations, Sea Country lets the reader know when to pick ripe wild cherries, when the moon (mutton) birds fly home and how the nautilus shells smell like the deepest oceans.
This book can be used alongside Storybook Lesson 9 in InitiaLit–2 (lesson available from the MultiLit Members’ Area).
