The future is in good hands if our children’s and young adult bestseller list is anything to go by. Our top ten this week is dominated once again by books from First Nations voices, including a celebration of past and present Indigenous legends (Our Home, Our Heartbeat), a picture book about the Uluru Statement (Finding Our Heart), a gorgeously illustrated depiction of the Welcome to Country ceremony (Welcome To Country), a heartfelt treatise on the role of respect in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture (Respect), and a junior version of Bruce Pascoe’s groundbreaking history book (Young Dark Emu).

Also on the list this week is the prequel to the bestselling Hunger Games trilogy, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes; two books from our favourite cartoon family Bluey: Big Backyard and Bluey: The Creek; a sophisticated magical realism novel for teen The End of the World Is Bigger than Love; and the charming debut middle-grade novel from Readings' own Fiona Hardy, How to Make a Movie in Twelve Days. Hardy’s sophomore novel How to Write the Soundtrack to Your Life is due to hit our shelves in September, and we can’t wait.
