WHERE HAVE ALL THE FLOWERS GONE? Back in print

This really beautiful environment book suitable for 5 years and up to adults won a Wilderness Society environment award for children's books. It has now been re-released by Five Senses Education in Sydney.

PROUDLY PRINTED IN AUSTRALIA.

IT DETAILS THE BEAUTIFUL WILDFLOWERS THAT GREW ON RED HILL ON SYDNEY'S NORTHERN BEACHES. Then the land was developed for housing and the flowers were bulldozed, roads laid and houses built. But Where have all the flowers gone?  Gone forever for houses every one that's where all the flowers have gone! It has a small 1 page essay in the back detailing how Australia has lost 50% of its vegetation since European settlement. The flowers are beautifully illustrated in full colour by artist Jan Wade.
