For recommended recent reads for kids from Indigenous writers, try:


Baby Business by Jasmine Seymour

Jasmine Seymour is a Darug woman and a descendant of Maria Lock, daughter of Yarramundi. Her new book, Baby Business, is a beautifully illustrated story of the baby smoking ceremony that welcomes baby to country. This beautiful ritual is recounted in a way young children will completely relate to.


My Culture and Me by Gregg Dreise

Both heartfelt and stirring, My Culture and Me is a beautifully written and illustrated story of cherishing and sustaining Indigenous cultures. The words and pictures from Gregg Dreise will inspire all readers to learn more about this beautiful country.


Little Bird’s Day by Sally Morgan and Johnny Warrkatja Malibirr

Sally Morgan’s enchanting new book, illustrated by Johnny Warrkatja Malibirr, the inaugural winner of the Kestin Indigenous Illustrator Award, exquisitely renders the story of Little Bird as she sings the world alive. It’s a moving and tender story, brought to life by quirky and intricate illustrations.


Wilam: A Birrarung Story by Aunty Joy Murphy, Andrew Kelly and Lisa Kennedy

Wilam: A Birrarung Story tells the story of one day on the life of a remarkable river – the dynamic, flourishing river that many of us know as the Yarra. Exploring the river through both its geographical and Indigenous history, Wilam: A Birrarung Story is a must-have for every school, library and home in Victoria.
