About the Book – Nedingar

This lyrical, dual language picture book from two debut First Nations creators celebrates the beauty of Country and family. ‘Please Mum, I want to meet my ancestors, I want to learn from them so I know who I am.’ Inspired by traditional Indigenous teachings, every family will relate to this beautiful bilingual picture book as brought to life by Noongar storytellers Isobel Bevis and Leanne Zilm highlighting the rich cultural heritage, we all share. The book features gorgeously hand painted images of Australian flora and fauna.
