Sand Talk

by Tyson Yunkaporta

 “This book is an unpretentious colossus, resonating with vibrancy and truth. It is a potent and intimate conversation about our relationship with each other and our earth, and the possibility of our reconnection with all things. Yunkaporta illustrates our interconnectedness through story and symbol, ways of addressing contemporary complexities with vast indigenous wisdom and deep respect. This is to be read and shared with everyone.- Gin

  A ten out of ten read for me! Sand Talk is exciting and bursting with ideas, it is an invitation to listen and understand and an offering of hope for future sustainability systems- which is everything to me. Yunkaporta is talking about indigenous culture’s sustainability for thousands upon thousands of years and turns this practise and thinking onto contemporary society to offer solutions for sustainability today. Turning the current mode of Western thinking up-side down. Through yarning with a range of custodians of the land, Yunkaporta has brought oral history alive through the written text. This is an exciting prospect as it has created a fire in my belly and I hope in other readers as well. Yunkaporta is also a carver; in addition to the sand talk diagrams, he has also created wood carving for each of these chapters. Readers of Dark Emu have their next read right here.- Dean 

 "Never have I wanted – so urgently and so completely – to commit a book to memory as I did while reading Tyson Yunkaporta's Sand Talk. This is book is a revelation. It shouldn't just be read, but shared, discussed, used as a tool to reinterpret our past and future. I loved this book – its wisdom, kindness, vigour, complexity and humility. For me, it felt unbelievably generous, personal and hopeful. I'm not sure I can recall a book about the future of humanity this hopeful, energising and unique." - Emma CO

Welcome to Country: Youth Edition
 
By Marcia Langton

Australia is alive with the long history of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, our cultures and our stories. My generation of Aboriginal people want young Australians to be taught more about our history and culture than we were. I have met very few Australians who learned anything in school about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Many have told me that if they were taught anything at all, it was incorrect and often racist. In fact, many Australians think that the only ‘real’ Aboriginal people are those who live in the deserts. This idea is based on two centuries of racist views that were wrong and should have no place in modern Australia.’"– Professor Marcia Langton

Welcome To Country is a brilliant book about the true history of Australia. This children's edition full of digestible informationand is essential reading for everyone who calls this land home..” - Olivia

Don't Worry, Little Crab

by Chris Haughton

There is something so special when both child and parent love a book just as much as each other. Chris Haughton is one of those rare creators who gets it right every timeHis new book Don’t Worry Little Crab is absolutely spectacular and it's easily my favourite picture book of the year. Haughton’s collages are simple yet dynamic. The looks on Crab’s face is so wonderfully expressive but what this artist has created in the crashing waves is next level brilliance.

My son loves all of Chris Haughton’s books. When he was two he enjoyed the saturated and contrasting colours and now at four he enjoys reading the subtle, clever rhymes. Don’t Worry Little Crab is Haughton at his best - we love it!- Dean
