My goal today was to read at least a half dozen of the couple dozen picture books I have at home, but I think it s going to be just this one because it took me so long to read and view This book was well worth the time I took with it It s a superb book.This is definitely a book for readers because it is both so text heavy and because all the pictures maps have captions for every little thing, so a lot of reading is involved Pre readers may also enjoy it but I wouldn t recommend this book for My goal today was to read at least a half dozen of the couple dozen picture books I have at home, but I think it s going to be just this one because it took me so long to read and view This book was well worth the time I took with it It s a superb book.This is definitely a book for readers because it is both so text heavy and because all the pictures maps have captions for every little thing, so a lot of reading is involved Pre readers may also enjoy it but I wouldn t recommend this book for reading aloud unless the listener s can also read along, and not really even then.This book has two page spreads, including wonderful maps that could have been made by children and each time the reader turns the page they get taken back ten years, starting from 1988 and ending in 1788 Each section is narrated by a child who describes their life and place And, for all 200 years it s the exact same place in Australia Readers will see the different circumstances of the children, and their similarities, and will see how the place dramatically changes over time I have to say that creek spends way too many years being unusable At times the children s stories are very poignant the hardships are many and there are many deaths and at times the accounts are very amusing I loved this I d quite like to be a savage from the 1868 child and many other parts too.I appreciated the full circle of this starting and ending with Aboriginal children and thestraight line of showing how the place changed over time I loved learning about the various immigrants over the years, and their varied circumstances.Sometimes the every ten years seemed too short a time to show The changes seemed drastic sometimes, possibly not 100% realistic but maybe that s how it really was but sometimes I loved the time changes, especially when someone was mentioned in two time periods, such as at age 21 mentioned by that child and then back to at age 11 narrated by them 10 years earlier.I adored the illustrations, especially all the maps of the place I loved the kids and their surrounding, including the many animals There is so much detail, and it s all fascinating.There is a short glossary in the back, and while I knew the meaning of the majority of the words, I learned a few new ones.This would make a perfect book for older elementary school age readers who love maps, history, learning about people from different cultures in different times, Australia, and so muchGreat for kids about to make a trip to Australia Great for kids who like reading about how other children live and have lived Great for kids who like maps, and this book could be used as an inspiration for kids making their own maps of their places and also researching the history of their places.This is an incredibly busy book and it s worth taking hours to read I d have poured over this many times as a kid and probably eventually memorized its contents.I d love other books such as this about other places, including my little area of the world It hasn t changed quite so much so quickly in recent years though, but I d find it really interesting to go back 200 years and see the changes in land and peoples I d love books such as this for many other locations This one was captivating I love this book It s a read again and again and again kind of book. Oy Working backwards was confusing If I really cared, I d work forwards on a reread next week But really, my only question now is, What kind of tree is a Big Tree that lives for so very long like that An early picture shows mangroves And where is this, actually There s a reference to Sydney Town and a mention of being close enough to see the ocean.

little book reveals a series of stories about the history of Children in Australia Starting from 1988 the individual little stories go back in time dating back to 1788.Each page demonstrates what the homes looked like and a map of the area in which the house is positioned They seem to demonstrate some of the issues which affected the society at the time, tapping into the local issues and then following such issues of the immigrants coming to Australia, their language and their lifestyles Although you get caught up with the story of the children sharing, it is also the pictures that you can spend time on searching for various changes It is not till you stop and look a little closer that you realise that it is the land which is the main item.The story shares about the various people who have lived on that patch of ground and the way in which it changed over the past 200 years I found this brilliant, for many of us we do not often stop and think of the changes that have happened over a fifty year period, let alone a two hundred year span I found this book fascinating as it made me think about the various changes that I have seen in the past years.This book would be excellent for children and adults to read as it is thought provoking and an interesting way to help reflect over the past.For teachers this would be a brilliant tool for teaching the history of Australia as it can help to encourage children to think about the changes that have happened to their house over the years It can assist in maths in many areas and it can also be used in Lote lessons to demonstrate the various changes of society and the various languages that have been used over time Although the grammar is not exact it is shared through a child s language which I feel makes it easy to relate to the child reading it As an Adult I found myself going back to it to check it out and each time finding something new This is an excellent book to read and reflect.The story demonstrates the delicate issues with the fact that Aboriginal People were on the land first It is gentle in the way that the people of the past have changed Australia, the effects that it has had on the land and the people It shares of the different migrants that have come to Australia and even the thoughts that they have gone through A very thought provoking book of our past history in Australia This could help children understand what it would have been like for those families, living in the house under the various circumstances that they came from It could help them understand the sadness of the Aboriginal People of the past having their land taken away from them and it can help them understand some of the difficulties that migrants and refugees go through today.An awesome idea of a book for history to teach children This is another picture book that is better poured over than read aloud The premise is a look backwards in time for a single location tracing the people who lived in one house over time, and then back beyond that to who lived there, even before the house was built My favorite part is the map that is found on each page, showing how the location changed over the years I love maps If you are looking for story, you have to construct it by looking carefully at the changes More straightforwardl This is another picture book that is better poured over than read aloud The premise is a look

them My Place is different in each time period being depicted, and nothing emphasizes thatthan the maps, ostensibly drawn by each child narrator, that are included, thus allowing changes in population level, building density, and types of industry activity present to be tracked visually, as well as textually.An engaging and informative book, My Place draws a fascinating portrait of the changes effected by two hundred years of immigration to Australia, opening and closing, appropriately enough, with an Aboriginal narrator The copy I read, which was sent by a kindly goodreads pal down under thanks again, Kim is a 20th Anniversary Edition, which speaks to its lasting appeal A textually advanced picture book I d say the level wasmiddle grade, than early reader with incredibly detailed artwork that rewards close scrutiny, this is the kind of book to be slowly savored, and then read again and again Some of the details that struck me on this first reading the way that the children s companion animals varied, from generation to generation, but the need for them did not the fact that the Millers were once the M llers, something that quietly changed with no overt commentary in the text from 1908 to 1918 the ubiquity of hard work, in every generation profiled the matter of fact acceptance of convict labor, in many of the earlier periods, and the appalling fact that some convicts were young children like Sam , who were convicted of minor crimes like stealing a coat, in order to keep warm, and shipped off to lives of hard labor on the other side of the world could give way, or better yet, be augmented by new impressions and details, on a second or third approach to the book.There is so much to take in here, that it s difficult to know where to begin A rich, rich book, one that will give young readers an appreciation for the grand sweep of Australian history, while also filling in some of the human stories and details that make up that larger narrative, My Place is a work I believe of fiction, but would make an excellent selection for a young person s history class Just outstanding .DOWNLOAD E-PUB ⚔ My Place ♷ Starting inand going backyears, we are told the

beautiful tree as the one unchanging thing in that landscape is a very nice touch It s fun, almost like detective work, to keep track of names that are repeatedly mentioned, and connecting them to various families I also got a strong sense of how young Australia is as a country in only 200 years we had gone from an unspoilt natural environment, through European settlement, repeated migration and technological advances, to the metropolitan, busy, multicultural society we are today.This 20th anniversary edition contains an updated timeline that includes the Mabo decision and the Rudd

children I put it on my Book Depository wishlist A few weeks ago while looking through that list I saw the price was a mere 6.20 and decided to order it And I m glad I did.Written on the occasion of the Australian Bicentenary, the book relates 200 years of Australian history by focusing on a particular place a house somewhere in present day Sydney and the fictitious children who have lived there, starting off in 1988 and jumping back in 10 year leaps to 1788.Each double spread is devoted to a decade, and introduces a child telling about his or her life and showing a hand drawn map of the surroundings Sometimes the child from the decade before is an older relative, and sometimes he or she is from a different family because of course families move.The maps and the children s stories make clear how much has changed in a relatively short time, but also the things that have stayed the same There are a few constants, one of them the big fig tree that is never cut down I loved the sometimes very subtle details, for example the Miller family who before WW1 were still named M ller.There is some mild criticism of the way Aboriginals were treated In 1888, during the Centennial celebrations, a neighbour tells the child Victoria that Australia is much older than 100 years and that other people were living here, long before all of us In the 20th Anniversary edition of 2008, of which my 30th Anniversary edition is a reprint, the timeline in the front is updated to include 1998 and 2008 Australia says Sorry to Aboriginal people.Definitely a book to keep and reread It is wonderful, not just for children and not just for Australians
