The Sugarbag is such a gorgeous First Nations children's book written by Wiradjuri author Nola Turner - Jensen and illustrated by renowned Bigambul and Mandandanji illustrator Dub Leffler. This beautiful story shares the adventure of Jimmy who teaches his little brother Max how to find Sugarbag.

The Sugarbag is a great addition to all classroom libraries and an exceptional book for celebrating Australian Pollinators Week in November and to BEE a part of your bee themed classroom.

I would recommend The Sugarbag for Early Childhood through to Year 1 and would also be a great gift for a teacher, student or child.
