Those books were mostly about the flora and fauna, though, and I have to admit that I concentrated on the fauna. So to get more information - you have to remember, those were the early 80s and there was no internet - I wrote to the Australian Embassy and they sent me a wonderful big package of brochures and things which might even still be around somewhere. I worked through them and through library books and put together my presentation.
There was also to be a short Q&A session at the end, and not only the students could ask questions, but also the teacher who would usually ask the class to make sure they didn't drop off sleeping. A friend of mine asked me if I could tell her just one thing, so she could make a good impression, so she prepared to explain what marsupials are.
Back to the present ... today's finds of Zibbet are in honor of Australia's unique and wonderful fauna.
