it was amazing
bookshelves: children-s-books
Recommended for: Writers, Students of Foreign Languages

This short little hardcover children's picture book was produced by the Northern Territory Libraries in the language of the Anmatyerr people from the Ti Tree Region, Northern Territory, Australia.

In English, the title means: 'Mummy, Daddy, New Born Baby'.

Indigenous storytellers and artists have developed this beautiful short story which chronicles the life of a newborn baby, from conception through to toddlerhood.

At the end of the story, the words are reprinted in English.

The book also includes a CD produced by the Batchelor Institute.
