This booklet will help encourage the children in your class to read more widely and develop a life-long love of reading by taking them on a journey around Australia. Each week there is a new challenge for the children to complete and a new Australian author to discover. When the weekly challenge is completed, give them a sticker as a reward. Children can also complete bonus tasks to earn extra stickers each week. The Race Around Australia includes 10 locations around Australia, can be adapted to individual reading levels and also has space for the children in your class to answer questions about each location. Detailed instructions for children and their parents to follow are also included in the booklet.
