Buzz Words Achievement


Good news is that Dreaming Soldiers, a picture book by Catherine Bauer, illustrated by Shane McGrath (Big Sky Publishing) has been included on the 2019 South Australian Premier's Reading Challenge list.


The book weaves tales of childhood adventures and battlefield challenges with gentle Dreaming themes. It is a touching friendship story about Jimmy and Johnno, two young Australian boys in the 1900s; mates who do everything together, sharing adventures and growing up side by side in the dusty cattle yards of an Outback South Australian station and later the dusty WWI battlefields of the Western Front. 

The simple story-telling combines with stunning images to honour the service of Australian veterans and highlight the important contribution of Indigenous soldiers.
