The National Centre for Australian Children’s Literature has produced a new Resource that celebrates children’s books by and about Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
Stage 1, funded by the Commonwealth Department of Education, offers a range of books for children aged from birth to eight years now extended to 12 years.
These are offered for consideration and selection according to individual needs and interests. Each book is annotated and includes related resources to explore the book in many ways.
The Resource showcases books with a variety of storytelling techniques, genres, illustration and presentation styles to entertain, inform and engage readers.
The Resource is user-friendly and provides numerous searching options including free-text, author, illustrator, title, series, publisher, publication date, the Early Years Learning Framework, the Australian Curriculum, audience level, subjects and annotations, which give the essence, context and synopsis for each book.
Free access is available on NCACL’s website at Australian Children's Literature
