Award-winning children's author and artist Jeannie Baker has published her long anticipated new book, Circle. This beautifully illustrated story follows the migration of the Bar-tailed Godwit (Limosa lapponica baueri) from Australia through Southeast Asia to its Alaskan breeding grounds and then back to Australia.
Join Jeannie Baker at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne for a presentation and book signing for teachers, librarians, school staff, and anyone else interested. As part of her research for this amazing book, Jeannie made her own journey across the globe to observe the Godwits. As with each of Jeannie's picture books, Circle is illustrated with the tactile, exquisitely detailed and textured collages she is famous for. Hear the story of Jeannie's journey, inspiration and story-making process for Circle and other environmental picture books.
