In case you're interested, my train of thought went something like this . . .
- Last week I was looking at flowers for the Creative Kids. I took out some books about Australian wildflowers as a resource.
- I have a long time fascination with botanical art.
- I'm working to improve my drawing skills.
- Collecting and recording strange plants and animals was a major task of the early explorers.
- I'm keen to learn more about history. Personal accounts and biographies are one way of doing that--and I'm especially interested in the way individual characters come through.
