Dashing through the bush
In a rusty Holden ute
Kicking up the dust
Esky in the boot
Kelpie by my side
Singing Christmas songs
It's summer time and I am in
My singlet, shorts and thongs!
Oh, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells
Jingle all the way
Christmas in Australia
On a scorching summer's day
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells
Christmas time is beaut
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a rusty Holden ute!
Engine's getting hot
Dodge the kangaroos
Swaggie climbs aboard
He is welcome too
All the fam-i-Iy is there
Sitting by the pool
Christmas day, the Aussie way
By the barbeque!
Oh, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells
Jingle all the way
Christmas in Australia
On a scorching summer's day
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells
Christmas time is beaut
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a rusty Holden ute!
Come the afternoon
Grandpa has a doze
The kids and Uncle Bruce
Are swimming in their clothes
The time comes round to go
We take a family snap
Then pack the car and all shoot through
Before the washing up.

Bundoola: George Brown (engl.) 48 S.

Artikel-Nr.: B060

The territory of the Illawarra and South Coast Aborigines extends across the South Eastern region of NSW from LaPerouse to Kiah (Twofold Bay).
This Dreaming story tells of the significance of Beecroft Peninsula, Jervis Bay. Many South Coast people identify with this place because it was here that the Creator, Mirrigaal, took the dust of the Earth and created people. The ideas presented in this Dreaming story were retold by George Brown to the children of Kemblawarra Primary School near Devil's Hole, Beecroft Peninsula. The impact of this led to the production of this book.
Retold by George Brown. Adapted by Kim Cairns and Peter Houweling

Finding Home: Sandra Markle (engl.) 32 S.

Artikel-Nr.: B_0016

When we think about bushfires in Australia, our thoughts are for people and property. But what about the animals?

Just imagine how frightening the sights and sounds of a bushfire must be: flames, the sounds of crackling, thick black smoke, sparks being carried on the wind igniting everything in its path, animals fleeing, these are the sounds and smells of bushfires.

This book is based on the real life story of a koala nicknamed Cinders who survived two bushfires.
The story portrays the determination, love and survival instincts of a mother koala who protects her young joey from a raging bushfire. After getting her joey down safely from the tree she embarks on a journey in search of food. Encountering people and a dog along the way she eventually finds a new source of food and a home for them both.

This is a thought-provoking book, reminding us that animals matter too! It is supported by wonderful illustrations and anyone who loves animals will love this book.
