The Art in Country: A Treasury for Children by Bronwyn Bancroft
Gorges that plummet into serpentine shadows ...
Cloaks of white that drape the rocky crags of snowy mountains ...
In this magnificent celebration of country, Bronwyn Bancroft uses colours, shapes, patterns and words to explore the awe-inspiring beauty of the Australian continent, and to express the depth of her feelings for it.
The Art in Country: A Treasury for Children is an essential addition to any young Australian's library, and a perfect introduction to the many wonders that this country has to offer. This is a treasury to be cherished by all who love this land.
"We recently purchased The Art In Country and it has quickly become the new bedtime favourite. Both children are enjoying the stories as well as the beautiful illustrations. It has promoted our 7 year old to become more committed to her own art practice and we have noticed our 2 year old become more aware of colours and patterns in the environment. A stunning book the whole family are enjoying."
