Intended for ages 6 and upwards, this illustrated book invites children to closely observe the birds, plants, and animals that inhabit the unique environment of Kakadu, in the northern territory of Australia, by presenting the six Aboriginal seasons and their characteristics. It also explores educational themes including seasons in the tropics.
Kiwi Teacher: Lets talk about provocations... I’ve talked about the childs agenda before but I think it is important to mention it in this case as well. We need to consider this when setting up our environment or when we ask a question to children. Do not pre-empty an experience and decide what will happen. If you come with an agenda you may tend to restrict children. Remember children express themselves through a hundred languages...take a minute to observe how they speak.
