The book we sent our Cockatoo subscribers this month tells the story of a young boy and his family who have immigrated to Australia. Between that and the current bushfire crisis, this amazing country is very much at the forefront of our minds at the moment. Here are five chapter books set in Australia which we think would make perfect reading for anyone who would like to explore more about life Down Under.

This month marks the second anniversary of our first boxes being shipped and we can’t help but reflect on just how far we’ve come in the last two years. It’s been quite a ride!


Great new books on our shelves
