Bookaburras

In 2024 Fremantle Press and its sponsors will provide more than 4,500 kindergarten-age children, in playgroups, kindergartens and early learning centres across WA, with a Books for Little Bookaburras Book Pack including three specially selected picture books to take home and share with their families.

This mini-library is designed to encourage a love of stories, by including new books by local authors, including First Nations storytellers, which can be shared and enjoyed by families. First picture books are so important in shaping early experiences, and we can carry the memory of a great story with us throughout our lives. At Fremantle Press, we want to publish the best books for Australian children, telling stories which our children will really respond to, to inspire in them a love of reading and to make a positive difference in their lives.

Each Little Bookaburra participant will receive a copy of Say Hooray by Renae Hayward and Rebecca Mills, Backyard Birds by Helen Milroy and one of the following picture books by local WA authors and illustrators: Pandamonia by Chris Owen and Chris Nixon, The Two-Hearted Numbat by Ezekiel and Ambelin Kwaymullina, The Last Viking Returns by Norman Jorgensen and James Foley, or One Thousand Trees by Kyle Hughes-Odgers.

The Books for Little Bookaburras program is proudly sponsored by Stan Perron Charitable Foundation, Wright Burt Foundation, Hesperia Group, Paul Jones in memory of Allan and Wendy Jones, Barton Family Foundation and Hartree and Associates Architects.
