SITEWORKS: FIELD GUIDE TO BUNDANON








With so many wonderful picture and chapter books for children, it's easy to forget that they often enjoy non-fiction and reference books too. Before arriving at Bundanon I was reading about Egypt and Aboriginal Dreamtime to the seven-year-old.

When I recently bought Siteworks: Field Guide to Bundanon - which is about the flora, fauna and topography of the property - I knew it was going to be something I could read with my son.

It has a chapter showing cross-sections of the earth and includes topographical maps. There is a page on cicadas - which he loves - and monitor lizards. There are also botanical illustrations on dandelions and other flora that is common in many parts of Australia.

I'm sure there must be many other great resource books such as this, and would love any recommendations, especially ones that relate to Australian flora and fauna.
