My Place Series 2 by Australian Children's Television Foundation( visu )
4 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 144 libraries worldwide
My Place is a rich source of entertainment and education. It is one of the ultimate pieces of episodic literature and now it is on television, involving more than a century of time, lots of kids, and a tree to provide continuity. The second series of My Place adapts the final chapters of the book, written by Nadia Wheatley and Donna Rawlins, into 13 new episodes about 13 children who live in the same place, from 1878-1788 and Before Time. Their special place is the tree that represents a place of belonging. In Series 2 we first meet Henry (1878), an inventor whose machines never actually do what they're supposed to. And there's Johanna (1848) who lives with her grandmother and is looking for her father. We are also introduced to two characters in 1778, Waruwi, an Indigenous girl who encounters a cow for the first time, and Dan, a cabin boy on the First Fleet who tries to compensate Waruwi for her stolen dog. These and the many other stories featured are about the children's adventures and their empowerment. My Place features an extensive cast of acclaimed Australian actors. The series has rich curriculum content that relates directly to the studies of Australia through the learning areas of English, History and Geography
