About the Series
Asian Stories are contemporary tales set across Asia and the Pacific. Students follow characters their own age in their local environments – at school, at home, in the village, visiting local landmarks – so they can observe everyday life in another culture. How are their lives different to mine? Who works in their families and how? What are THEIR everyday challenges? This series has been written specifically for the Australian Curriculum priority: ‘Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia’.
