Thousands of years ago, people began migrating to the continent that would someday become Australia. The first people to arrive were the Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders. They settled the land and lived untouched for centuries. The Europeans then arrived in the 1700s, drastically changing the continent’s cultural identity. Like many countries and continents, it’s now filled with people from a variety of cultural backgrounds.

Children’s author Tania McCartney and illustrator Andrew Joyner have teamed up to show today’s children how Australian children of yesterday used to live in. Australian Kids through the Years features full-page illustrations that show how Aboriginal children played, how colonial children wore their hair, and what Australian children ate in the 1950s.

So if you want to teach your children more about Australia’s history, this delightful book makes a great kids gift. It also makes a wonderful Christmas, birthday, or back-to-school present for kids that have an interest in history.
