Great children's picture book, offering reassurance and advice about bushfires in Australia. I love that this book is specifically about Australian bushfires. It talks about the Australian environment and history around bushfires. It also includes information about the clever people who keep an eye on bushfire conditions such as weather watchers, indigenous rangers and 'fireys' (firefighters). Keep an eye out for the Aussie websites in the back of the book for even more info.
