Reviews

This beautiful picture book presents the voice of an Indigenous child relating the importance of knowing and living your culture . . . This book is perfect for Indigenous children who are finding their place in the revitalisation of Indigenous culture around Australia, and will also appeal to primary school aged children learning about Indigenous culture - Indigenous dance, music, instruments, spirituality, and connection to Country are all featured.

Cassie Lynch, Books + Publishing

Beautifully written and illustrated, My Culture and Me is a heartfelt and stirring story of cherishing and sustaining Indigenous cultures, although there is relevance and applicability to all cultures whatever they may be, especially if the message of his dedication is read in its broadest terms . . . An important addition to your indigenous literature collection and curriculum.
