This beautifully illustrated book is a treasure trove of Aboriginal role models and their achievements in Australian society. Celebrating Indigenous people’s contributions to pop culture aims to strengthen the pride and sense of belonging in Aboriginal children, while all the other children in your service are given the opportunity to share this pride and embrace diversity in their community.
Belonging, Being and Becoming are such important aspects of children’s lives and are beautifully conveyed by the children featured in this book, who are inspired by Aboriginal legends past and present: “My history is my strength, my future is my own.”
With our book recommendations, we want to spark an interest in children to discover STEM in their everyday lives. Most books go beyond the obvious STEM connections and can be a great starting point for exploring children’s questions and ideas further.
