  • Family Readers Series (English)

    This is a series of seven books about family relationships. Each book takes the children on an adventure with a different family member. We see dolphins with Mum at the beach, and go fishing with Dad at the river. We get oysters and prawns with Aunty, and Uncle takes us on the train to the football. Grandma shows us lots of animals in the bush and Grandfather teaches us how to make and throw spears. The books are beautifully illustrated with fun characters that experience Aboriginal life and traditions in the bush.
