Decorate your house with books. Get new ones from the library and situate them all over the house. If they have good cover art of a hero, ask your child to tell you the hero's story! Let your child make some book covers of his/her own for the books you have finished reading, and display the new book covers around the house, as well.
Oceania’s exotic, multi-island world includes several familiar places, such as New Zealand and Australia, but also contains many, many Pacific Islands with both familiar and unfamiliar names. This “continent” has widely divergent weather, geography, animals, and plant life. The books of Oceania tell of travel, animals, adventure, and culture, as well as the usual range from mystery and humor to religion and art. Read a few to find out why Australia and the surrounding areas have become a fascination for many. The Australian library associations and booksellers give awards to many excellent books yearly; however, some of the area’s very best their works are not available in the U.S. If you have difficulty getting some of these books from your library or Amazon.com, you may want to try an online Australian store.
