Stories for Six Year Olds PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Stories for Six Year Olds free pdf Booksellers, parents and grandparents alike have been clamouring for a series with stories especially chosen to appeal to children of different ages. The first of four eclectic collections features local Australian storytellers such as Gretel Killeen, Duncan Ball, Margaret Clark and Victor Kelleher, as well as international stars like Malorie Blackman and Joan Aitken. The stories for each age group have been especially chosen by children's anthologist and publisher, Linsay Knight, and she has tailored them to suit the interests and reading abilities of young readers as, year by year, they gain in confidence and want to be extended. Jobi Murphy, the illustrator and designer, has taken reading requirements, such as ratio of text to illustration and type size, into account when putting the books together. The books look friendly and accessible and are a must for children who like to be read to or who want a good read.

About Linsay Knight

THE EDITORS: Clare Scott-Mitchell had a long career in teaching Children's Literature at the Institute of Early Childhood (Macquarie University). She was the compiler of two acclaimed collections of poetry for children - WHEN A GOOSE MEETS A MOOSE and APPLES FROM HURRICANE STREET. Kathlyn Griffith is a lecturer at the Institute of Early Childhood (Macquarie University) and she specialises in children's poetry. Linsay Knight is widely respected as a leading expert in, and contributor to, children's literature in Australia. As the Head of Children's Books at Random House Australia, Linsay has nurtured the talent of numerous authors and illustrators to create some of Australia's most successful children's books. Linsay is also the author of several successful non-fiction children's books. THE ILLUSTRATOR: Gregory Rogers studied fine art at the Queensland College of Art. Gregory's first major illustration commissions were book covers for young adult novels for University of Queensland Press. He has since illustrated a large number of educational and trade children's picture books. Among these are AUNTIE MARY'S DEAD GOAT by Margaret Card, THE POSTMAN'S RACE by Ian Trevaskis, TRACKS by Gary Crew, LUCY'S BAY by Gary Crew, WAY HOME by Libby Hathorn and RUNNING AWAY FROM HOME by Nigel Gray. In 1995, Gregory won the Kate Greenaway Medal for his illustrations in WAY HOME. He is the first, and to date only, Australian illustrator ever to have won this prestigious British award. WAY HOME also won a Parents' Choice Award in the US and was shortlisted for the ABPA Book Design Awards. Gregory's most recent picture books include BEYOND THE DUSK by Victor Kelleher, and PRINCESS MAX by Laurie Stiller for Random House Australia.
