May Gibbs Gumnut Babies are so much more than classic Australian children’s stories. They are a tradition. An education. And an adventure.
The ever so cute Snugglepot and Cuddlepie take readers on a wonderful journey through the Australian bush. Teaching kids about kindness, friendship and native Australia.
Gumnut Babies traditions
At one point or another, every child has owned or read one of May Gibbs unforgettable Gumnut Babies books. They have owned artwork, plates and other various merchandise, often passed down from their parents.
Preschool classes share the stories and base craft projects around Snugglepot, Cuddlepie and of course the Banksia Men. Schools are inundated with the famous Australian book characters for book week each and every year. Proving once more that Gumnut Babies are timeless.
Stories from the Australian bush
Snugglepot and Cuddlepie set off for wonderful adventures in the Australian bush, teaching children along the way about native plants and Australian wildlife. Everything from gumnut trees and blossom to banksia and wattle. Kookaburras and lizards to spiders and snakes.
May Gibbs has taught children through Gumnut Babies about the importance of friendship, kindness and accepting others as they are.
May Gibbs story books
As a parent, I love how May Gibbs’ stories are not just written in a way that captivates a child’s mind, but also accompanied by beautiful illustrations. You cannot help but be drawn in by the characters, lessons and adventures of these stories. Each book features numerous fun-filled adventures. They are short and sweet which is perfect for bedtime reading.
