Friends of the Flood is an Australian children’s story inspired by the January 2011 floods that swept across our great southern land. The rain is pouring down and the river is rising fast. Our Aussie bush animals are trapped and their lives are in great danger ... who will save them? It could be the most unlikely hero of all!
This beautifully illustrated story mirrors the co-operation between Australian people who cast their differences aside in order to help one another. Through great adversity special friendships were formed and lives, homes, and communities were rebuilt.
Your child will love the endearing illustrations of Australian animals including possums, owls, emus, wombats, echidnas, cockatoos, dingos, snakes and frogs. They will be enraptured by the clever rhyming and heartwarming tale of animals cooperating. You can use this book to teach children about Australian animals, predators and prey, cooperation and learning how to cope with adversity.
