Head out on a counting adventure in Sydney with Found in Sydney from Joanne O’Callaghan and Kori Song.
Written in rollicking rhyme, every page features a number and a special place in Sydney to explore.
Two baby koalas sleep in a tree.
Kangaroos, emus and giraffes to see.
Three cheeky seagulls are flying around.
Count the objects and pour over the funky illustrations on each page. If you’re a Sydney local, you’re sure to recognise all the fabulous locations, but there are enough iconic landmarks that non Sydney-siders will also recognise most.
At the back of the book, all of the featured places are listed and included on a map, so you can find out more about them and learn where they are (maybe for a Sydney trip of your own). There’s also some fantastic facts about Sydney in a section called ‘Did you Know?’, helping kids learn more about one of Australia’s most famous cities.
A fun way to learn about the city of Sydney, Found in Sydney is perfect picture book fun.
