Awesome Australians!

I LOVE hearing about other people’s stories , don’t you?

That’s why I enjoy reading Biographies ( a person’s life story written by someone else) and Autobiographies ( a person’s life story written by them self.)

We have many Biographies and Autobiographies in the Non-Fiction section of our library…… some are so inspiring!

Here are two new books in our library. They are short stories of some inspiring Australian men and women. The stories are quite easy to read, with interesting illustrations by Australian artists.
