Praise for Kookaburra Kookaburra -

"So excited to receive the beautiful Kookaburra Kookaburra book and card game today! I played a 'go fish' style game and 'snap' with my 6 y.o. at bedtime and she practiced reading the names or if unsure described the features of the bird - it was beautiful!"

"Just to say how impressed we are with Kookaburra Kookaburra. Beautiful layout, fantastic art and really well written."

"Received our copy of Kookaburra Kookaburra by Bridget Farmer, the children and I adore the illustrations."

"A truly amazing book, everything about it is perfect. Love it!"

Kookaburra book

I purchased the cards that accompany this book some time ago for my grandchildren. The book was sold out at the time. It’s a great book with great illustrations.

Beautiful book, gorgeous illustrations. Bridget Farmer has captured the characteristics of the birds spot on. Love the intent beady eye of the Red Wattlebird. Cracks me up! It's perfect!
