Just a quick Easter Sunday BookSnap. I have never really totally outgrown children’s books, I love the wit and wisdom one finds in a good kids book. They make lovely coffee table books and can bring a smile to a reader at any age. I couldn’t resist Chris Edser’s The Drop Bear. Beautiful illustrations and a bit of an eco message:
…Beware … If you bring loud noises, foul smell, disturb the bushland animals … or worst of all, leave behind your mess … Flumpth…You guessed it. You will be dropped on.
This is a lovely book, the illustration is gorgeous and hidden amongst the pages are a selection of some our amazing and unique creatures.
Not sure if I will keep up #BookSnapSunday, I might go back to a more random approach to book posts.
Just for fun who remembers the Scottish journalist who got so well pranked while covering the Kangaroo Island fire disaster in 2020?
On a more serious note Toowoomba has it’s own branch of The Wilderness Society and one of their current projects is working with other local environmental groups to help plant trees for koala food since local carers have to travel large distances to locate enough leaf for the animals in their care. As part of the 2020 fire disaster, the local Peachy fire just north of Toowoomba, while much smaller than many of the fires from that summer from hell, nevertheless, left animals injured and homeless. The lack of feed trees for the injured koalas highlighted the need to plant more koala friendly habitat. Habitat loss is without question the biggest threat to koalas in Queensland. The new Toowoomba Wilderness group manned a stall at the farmers market yesterday to promote the koala tree project and as a bit of a membership drive for the new Toowoomba branch of The Wilderness Society.
