Indigenous words are integrated seamlessly into the English text to create this bilingual cultural celebration. The glossary and pronunciation guide provide non-Indigenous readers the opportunity to learn some Gundungurra.
Echidnas are a perfect choice for this slow and contemplative journey of discovery. The Australian life depicted visually is wonderfully realistic, and images provide a range of views to create a strong sense of place.
The muted earthy tones of the delicate illustrations reflect the colours of the land and create a gentle mood of wisdom. This book will enrich readers’ understanding and respect of Indigenous culture, history, language and Dreaming.
