Come with us, see our homes, hear their sounds.

Our Home is a picture book about where children live in Australia. From a rugged coast to an outback station to a high-rise apartment, Our Home showcases the landscapes, families and communities that make up our homes in Australia.

Our Home is full of onomatopoeia to describe the sounds that homes make. Suburban homes whizz, beach homes sigh and farms rustle.

Children aged 3 and over will love to join in with this noisy story that fosters belonging, identity and a sense of place.
