The Story of Rosy Dock

By Jeannie Baker
Illustrated by Jeannie Baker

For ages 5–6

The Australian desert: for thousands of years the only changes here were made by the wind, the willy-willies and sometimes the rain.

Then a hundred years ago people from Europe settled in the desert and planted seeds from the other side of the world.

The Story of Rosy Dock is the story of one of the settlers who followed them, and her garden in the wilderness, a garden that is beautiful – but with an unexpected flowering.

Why picture books?

Picture books cover a diverse range of topics, expose children to words and language they might not hear normally in conversation, and teach children how reading works (left to right, top to bottom). While picture books might be too hard for early readers to read by themselves at first, the books are not too hard to understand. Reading picture books with your child will inspire them to learn to read on their own, and experience the pleasure of reading.
