Family

Family is a thoughtful contemplation for all to learn the different ways that family makes us whole. This beautifully illustrated children’s picture book shows everyone that ‘family’ can be about heart and home; an endless sky; stories and songs. It ‘learns’ us how to be with each other and with Country. Families come in all shapes and sizes, and this remarkably simple story teaches us all, that family can be many things.

This is the second book from the Our Place series, that introduces young minds to First Nations’ cultural philosophies that Aunty Fay Muir, a Boonwurrung Elder holds close to her heart.
