My Canberra Project
Gregory Murdoch and Rachel Flynn
My Canberra Project explores, in a lively and humorous format, facts about Australia's capital city, Canberra. The text is presented as a school project scrapbook and explores the political significance of the capital. It explains the role of the Governor General, the House of Representatives and the Senate. Interesting facts engage reader interest, and provide information on the cultural significance of the capital through the presentation of key attractions, such as the National Library, the Australian War Memorial, the Captain Cook Water Spout, the Australian Institute of Sport and the National Gallery of Australia. Written for mid to upper primary students. Soft cover, colourful illustrations, 28 pages.
