Who’s The Gang on Our Street is a narrative non-fiction with supporting facts. It is written to delight young people about the antics and values of our loved sulphur-crested cockatoos.
It combines creative imagery and information and is on the K-3 Australian national curriculum for Australian birds. It links into the social and emotional module where Sulphur-crested Cockatoos have a social structure which embraces equality, inclusion, no bullying, loyalty and values that relate to the best of what we seek to teach children. They are also funny, playful, affectionate and smart. Sulphur-crested cockatoos are part of Australian identity in both the city and bush.
