Annotation

Young people who are students at the Royal Children's Hospital (RCH) in Melbourne set out to discover the cultures around them as well as the commonalities between them. Led by teachers at the RCH, the children wrote and illustrated about their experiences of different cultures, where those cultures are from as well as what it is to be Australian. This colourful book would be a good launching pad for students to create a similar book about their class, school or suburb.
