Homeless: BILINGUAL VERSION
To be homeless is a terrible thing. Why does it happen and how can we help?
I worked at a school where the students learnt about homelessness from 'Rosies', a support group for homeless people in Cairns. We organised events and created a second-hand toy sale to raise money for homeless people in our area. What can you do to help change lives in your area?

With free access to a bilingual and a Japanese-only audiobook and hiragana chart bookmark, this picture book has been written for Primary or Secondary intermediate students of Japanese, (ideally Year 5 and 6, or Year 7 and 8) of the Australian Curriculum.
Each colourful page is firstly presented in hiragana only. Once the page is turned, children can then see the same page with both the English meaning and also each hiragana character decoded in romaji above, so that readers are able to check on the accuracy of their hiragana reading as they go. This story also works well as a role play.
The book is generously sized at 20.6cm by 20.6 cm making it easy to hold and images and words clear and easy to see. Printed locally in Australia on quality paper, this book has been made to last in a classroom, library or home with long term use in mind.
