Several years ago, I got the chance to visit Melborne and southern Australia for 2 weeks. I saw so many cool things and even learned new words, like "chockers" which means completely full. The trolley was often chockers.
One of my favorite books is Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst. Alexander is sure bad days never happen in Australia.
I just read Over in Australia: Amazing Animals Down Under by Florida author Marianne Berkes. This rhyming, fun, and fact-filled picture book is great for everyone, but especially teachers. It's part of a series that includes books on the Arctic, Jungle, and Ocean. Check it out!
