The Trees

Victor Steffensen

Take a walk with Uncle Kuu in The Trees, a picture book about caring for Country and respect for Indigenous knowledge.

Looking after the trees is important for keeping Country happy and healthy. First Nations People have cared for the trees on Country for thousands of years. In return, the trees look after the people and provide them with gifts of seeds, flowers, wood and more. This creates the balance between giving and taking from the land. Featuring stunning artwork by Sandra Steffensen, The Trees is a powerful and timely story to help future generations manage our landscapes and ensure that they thrive.

At the back of the book, you will find lyrics to a song written by author Victor Steffensen with the title, 'We are the Trees', and a QR code to watch the song's YouTube video. This book is the follow-up to Victor Steffensen's Looking after Country with Fire, which explains Aboriginal burning practices for children.
