When families move to live in Australia the parts of everyday Aussie life that we take for granted can be overwhelming or confusing. Enter my French friend Laurence Aubineau and her (French & German) family. Together we created a series 'Nina's Australian Adventures' and the first book which we wrote for the series is out - WELCOME DOWN UNDER.
Aimed at ages around 8, this chapter book has great colour illustrations throughout. It is about Nina who has moved from Germany with her parents, her new Australian home and friends and all the strange new ways Nina experiences ....and a magic charm bracelet. It's informative, funny and a great read. Readers can even collect the bracelet and charms as the adventures progress.
