This book is a wonderful collection of May Gibbs’ beautiful bush babies stories. Featuring gum-blossom babies, Boronia babies, bad Banksia men and other bush creatures, this book is a must have for all Australian children.
This beautiful book contains some of the sweetest stories you will ever read. Filled with great descriptions and amazing illustrations, the gumnut babies are truly a national treasure.
I can remember how amazing I thought these tales were when I was read them as a child, now reading them as an adult they seem even more magical.
May Gibbs’ illustrations breathe extra life into these stories giving them another layer.
I finished this book with a warm feeling in my chest, a smile on my face, and proud to be an Australian.
I don’t have a bad word to say about this book.
If you aren’t familiar with or you haven’t read these stories since childhood, you need to get yourself a copy now. Lose yourself in the bush and enjoy a magical journey with the loveable Gumnut Babies.
