I enjoyed reading this book because it is about a different culture. Ernie has to live in Australia for a whole year while his parents work at a hospital. He writes every friend through out the year on the different seasons that are celebrated in Australia. This would be a great book to teach children about Australian outback. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618104429, Hardcover)

Ernie says goodbye to his friends Rosie, Frank, Tessa, Nicky, Clive, and Celeste, and promises to write to them. He flies over the desert and crosses the floodplains and the East Alligator River to his new home in Arnhem Land in the Australian outback, where he will live for a year while his parents work in a hospital there.
Ernie writes to each friend about a different season — Kudjewk, Bangekerreng, Yekke, Wurrkeng, Kurrung, or Kurnumeleng — explaining what that time of year brings and revealing the exciting things that he and his new friends are doing. Back home, his six old friends share what they have learned and try some of the activities of the Australian outback.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:25:48 -0400)

When Ernie leaves the city and goes to live in the Aboriginal reserve of Arnhem Land, he sends letters to his old classmates describing the activities of his new friends.
