Summary

Where in the world could you hear the hum of a didgeridoo and "G'day, Mate" and enjoy Bondi Beach while wearing your sunnies (sunglasses)? Why, in the Land Down UnderAustralia! In D is for Down Under: An Australia Alphabet, young readers are invited to visit the world's smallest continent to explore its unique landscapes, sheep shearing stations, and to complete the journey with a Vegemite sandwich. Lively poems introduce each topic followed by in-depth expository text. We're hitting the road with a jeep full of gear, bound for the rugged Australian frontier. O is for outback where legends abound and wild and wonderful creatures are found. Authentic, entertaining illustrations straight from Melbourne bring the spirit of Australia to the pages of this alphabet book.

Excerpts

What country holds the title as the world’s smallest continent and yet the world’s largest island?

I stands for island, but one that’s not too small.

Our island is enormous. Just try to see it all!

There’s no place else quite like it; that is clearly true.

Australia is a continent, but it’s an island, too.
