My Country is a wonderfully colourful celebration of country and highlights the the connections between indigenous people and the land.
The simple text written by Ezekiel Kwaymullina creates a story of what life would have been like for his grandmothers growing up. The vibrant and colourful illustrations by Sally Morgan bring the narrative to life and depict a child’s relationship with the land and animals around her.
My Country depicts an indigenous Australian take on life and makes it relevant to young readers. A reminder of the significance and importance of having connection with country.
