little gumnut babies

Last Thursday, 26 January was Australia Day! And not being there, i surf the internet hoping to find images from the celebration. But in no time Mays Gibbs popped in my head. She is one of Australia’s top children’s authors/illustrators and i absolutely loved her books when i was a kid. She created books about the bush fairies surrounded by Australian native wildlife. Here are my favourite, cute little gumnut babies sitting on gum (eucalyptus) leaves ….and together with skippy!
