Listen to the song that accompanies Grandpa's Gold

Jake and his Grandpa head off to the goldfields to search for gold. It’s much harder for Grandpa to find gold than he expects.

Aside from Grandpa’s Gold, there’s also a non-fiction book for kids about finding gold, Jake’s Golden Handbook. Check it out.

Hope we got your feet tapping to Come Along to the Goldfields!

Australia’s Professionals Praise Brave Danny

"This great book exposes the impact it has on a child and how some significant information can change a child’s perception about what is normal and what is not. It is a book that is not only of great value for educators, parents and children but those in the helping profession such as counsellors and social workers who are working with children in domestic violence situations."

Bette Blance

President, William Glasser institute-New Zealand

"This book is powerful in its simplicity targeting an age group who are invisible. The teaching notes and activities add depth to the story giving teachers and children the opportunity to fully engage with the concepts that underpin the story. This will be an outstanding teaching tool that fills an enormous gap in children’s literature."

Dr Deborah Walsh

School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work,, University of Queensland

"I can’t speak highly enough of this timely book for young children. Little ones who are afraid to speak up – and who probably don’t know where to turn. Young readers will get the message that it’s okay to ask for help, and that sometimes, even the smallest person in the household can be the catalyst for change. The downloadable worksheets and suggested activities reinforce the message in the book and allow children to ask questions and explore options in a supportive environment."
