This book is about a girl called Poppy who lives at bird Creek Mission near Echuca. (in Australia)
Poppy lives in a Mission, with her brother, Gus, who has run away to pan for gold.
It is part of a small collection and has a real human side that has hooked some of my kids,.
The charm bracelet that goes across the top of each book has been a topic of conversation.
I have a charm bracelet so took it to school and shared it with my grade.
They were fascinated by the stories behind each charm.
My first charm was an owl that wears a graduation hat and was given to me by my grandparents - both have sadly passed away.
My next charm was a Christmas tree - my first Christmas with my husband.
Some stories bought a tear to my eye and we had such a great conversation about memories and how we remember things and people.
