A walking trip from the suburbs to the beach. The words and pictures are compiled into an engaging lyrical story children will love.
The late Sylvia Emmerton who was a primary teacher turned her memories of growing up in North Queensland into a lyrical story. Amusing and educational for early childhood and beyond. Jaquanna Elliott’s gouache illustrations lovingly capture the landscape and people.
This text has been selected for accelerated literacy programs throughout Indigenous Australia. “Has all the requirements for literacy in its down-to-earth subject, rhythmic story structure and familiar vocabulary. A teacher’s delight.” (Alan Randell, involved with Aboriginal education for 50 years).
