The Australian Curriculum: English enables students to explore and appreciate the diverse range of traditional and contemporary texts from and about the peoples and countries of Asia, including texts written by Australians of Asian heritage.
View AEF’s comprehensive list of literary texts for use across year levels featuring Asia and Asian themes including picture books, novels, non-fiction texts, films and short stories.
Asian–Australian Children’s Literature and Publishing (AACLAP) compiles examples of Australian children's literature either set in Asia, with Asian–Australian content or featuring characters that represent Asian–Australian cultures and experiences. To access AACLAP, contact your school librarian, as most secondary school libraries subscribe to Auslit.
