When I was pregnant with the twins back in 2008 one of my lovely work colleagues gifted me some beautiful children’s books. Knowing that I didn’t grow up in Australia she selected her favourite Aussie books and one of them was ‘Are we there yet?’ by Alison Lester. Over the years our copy has been read over and over again and even though they can pretty much dream it the kids still grab it off the shelf often.
Since its first release in 2004 more than 200,000 copies of this award-winning picture book have been sold in Australia alone. The gorgeous new adaption ‘Are we there yet? Lift the flap and play I-spy’, lovingly created for younger readers, is bound to warm many more hearts across the country and the globe.
Join Grace and her family as they go on a fun trip across Australia, exploring the pretty scenery and spotting local wildlife along the way. How lucky are we to live in such a beautiful country? Like on any good road trip there is lots to see and do, are you up for a game of I-spy? There is no cheating in this book, find out if you were right by lifting the little flaps.
Not only would ‘Are we there yet?’ be a lovely read for young Australian readers, it would also make a perfect gift for little friends overseas who are yet to discover all that Australia has to offer. What would you like to see on your next Aussie road trip?
