Welcome to my first review for 2022. Both of the fabulous books I am reviewing have a South Australian connection and were published in 2021.
Ngarrindjeri yanun Kraiyiis retold and illustrated by the students of Goolwa Primary School with Cedric Varcoe and Amanda Westley. Published by Goolwa Primary School.
The students of Goolwa Primary School have cleverly illustrated the pages of this wonderful book that explains the meaning of the kraiyi (snake). Through the explanation of each segment of the kraiyi you are able to learn the language of the Ngarrindjeri people as well as learning how they lived and cared for the land in the past and continue to do so now.
Where birds sing and wildflowers dancewritten by & illustrated by Jason Tyndall. Published by Nature Play SA.
This very special book has been written as a guide for exploring South Australia’s National Parks. Throughout the book are stunning photographs and hand drawn images of nature. There are detailed explanations of the plants, flowers and creatures in the parks as well as poetry and other interesting information. If you have a family member or a friend that loves walking in nature in SA this is the perfect book for you and them to share.
