#TTWIBRAT: Childhood faves from Australia & Lists of European reads!


Playing catch up on my posts for the Travel the World in Books Reading Challenge! I wanted to post on books for Australia and Europe because I have a few titles I really like!

The goal of Travel the World in Books Reading Challenge:

Explore countries other than the one where you live. Read as much as you can of books set in a different country or by an author from a different country. Read for your own pleasure or learning, read with your kids or both. Travel the world from the comfort of your own home and learn about different cultures. Expand your horizons and show publishers that #WeNeedDiverseBooks to promote cultural understanding and diversity in our reading. Support diverse authors and books.

Australia

I read this as a child and promptly fell in love with it. It's about a young girl who gets lost in the Australian Outback and a friendly kangaroo takes her in. This is considered an Australian classic children's book and as far as I known is little known outside of Australia! The illustrations are beautiful too. This has been made into an animated movie, which of course, I've also watched.

Look at those illustrations! What's not to love?
