Description

Sunrise to sunset there are sheep with attitude, a shed of shearers, dogs with personality, motorbikes and a country kitchen to open the door on the life of a country kid.

As the sun peeks over the horizon we are ready to start the working day all over again... I love shearing time! Shearing time is the best time of the year! Told through the eyes of a child, Shearing Time is a charming and evocative story that captures the author's delight as her family work together during one of their most significant annual tasks. Sunrise to sunset there are sheep with attitude, a shed of shearers, dogs with personality, motorbikes and a country kitchen to open the door on the life of a country kid.

Shearing Time reflects the experience of rural children while providing an opportunity for early childhood readers to both appreciate that the lives of others are different to their own, to understand concepts related to the Australian farming experience and to engage with a delightful, accessible narrative of times past. Childhood memories and experiences bring the past to life!

About Allison Paterson

Allison Marlow Paterson is the author of the 2016 ABIA and CBCA longlisted title Anzac Sons: Five Brothers on the Western Front, the children's version of the adult non-fiction title Anzac Sons: the Story of Five Brothers in the War to End All Wars. Both are based on a collection of over 500 letters sent from the Western Front by her grandfather and his four brothers. Her children's picture books Granny's Place and Shearing Time are inspired by childhood memories of her grandparents and life on the farm. Allison was a teacher-librarian for over twenty years and has reviewed children's literature for Magpies Magazine for 15 years. Allison now works full-time as a writer and presenter in schools. She was a recipient of a 2017 May Gibbs Children's Literature Trust Creative Time Fellowship. The resulting young adult manuscript Follow After Me was published in 2019. Australia Remembers: Anzac Day, Remembrance Day and War Memorials is the first in a series with the next, Customs and Traditions of The Australian Defence Force to be released in 2021.
