Ayla’s Christmas Wish

Pamela Jones, Lucia Masciullo

Christmas is coming and Ayla wants a snowman just like in her book, but there is no snow to be found in her drought-stricken Australian town, not even a drop of rain. Only bales of hay…

• Highlights the differences and similarities between European and Australian Christmas traditions.
• Celebrates quirky hay bale art competitions across rural Australia.

This picture book is perfect for children 3+ who wish to celebrate Christmas traditions the Australian way and learn how they’ve adapted over time to the Southern Hemisphere season.
