    Thanks @harpercollins. If you have any books that you would like reviewed I would love to do it for you. I have just started a blog that focusses on books that have an environmental & sustainability theme. My blog is flickingonthebook.wordpress.com

        Thank you Jacqui.
        I am trying to focus on books that can be linked to the Australian curriculum.
        I have started my focus on the sustainability strand but have found some new great books that link to the general capabilities & other cross curriculum priorities.
        So really anything that can link to sustainability, environment, links to other countries, refugees, creativity & imagination, topical issues.
        I am aiming my blog to link picture books to children. To make meaning in picture books to their own lives and to help teachers to use more picture books in the classroom – even if it is just a springboard for something else. I think we can make more use of books in our classrooms to link ideas.
        I am a teacher librarian, gifted educator and a mum to two young children.
        My email is nes.ryan@bigpond.com.

        Thanks again!
