Raining Cats and Dogs
Format: Hardcover

This charming and imaginative book playfully pairs works of art with onomatopoeia and graphics as a fun way to introduce pre‑schoolers to art—although it’s also sure to appeal to animal lovers of all ages. Children will develop early word-recognition skills through onomatopoeic associations and learn how to visually read works of art and the world around them through graphic associations. The paintings, photographs, prints, drawings and sculpture featured in Raining cats and dogs will also introduce children to the diversity of works of art on those most familiar of family pets, cats and dogs.

Raining cats and dogs includes twenty-two full-colour illustrations of child-friendly works of art in the National Gallery of Australia’s collections from Australia and around the world.

The Eagle Inside
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Australian;
Grade Levels: Preschool;

A timeless tale about difference, belonging, and courage that will inspire children to have faith in their inner strength.

The smallest bird at school, Jimmy feels certain he will never fit in. But Eagle reminds him that being small isn’t necessarily a weakness, and that being different can also be a strength. This book is loosely based on the author’s university experience of feeling he would never fit in, yet being mentored by a teacher who encouraged him to focus on his inner strength, rather than race or class.

This book is a landmark collaboration between two powerhouses of the Indigenous community of Sydney -- artist, activist, and illustrator Bronwyn Bancroft and her son Jack Manning Bancroft, who is CEO of Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME) and has been listed among Sydney's Top 100 Most Influential People.
