Review: Found in Sydney

Head out on a counting adventure in Sydney with Found in Sydney from Joanne O’Callaghan and Kori Song.

Written in rollicking rhyme, every page features a number and a special place in Sydney to explore.

Two baby koalas sleep in a tree.

Kangaroos, emus and giraffes to see.

Three cheeky seagulls are flying around.

Careful your hot chips don’t fall on the ground.

Count the objects and pour over the funky illustrations on each page. If you’re a Sydney local, you’re sure to recognise all the fabulous locations, but there are enough iconic landmarks that non Sydney-siders will also recognise most.

At the back of the book, all of the featured places are listed and included on a map, so you can find out more about them and learn where they are (maybe for a Sydney trip of your own). There’s also some fantastic facts about Sydney in a section called ‘Did you Know?’, helping kids learn more about one of Australia’s most famous cities.

A fun way to learn about the city of Sydney, Found in Sydney is perfect picture book fun.
