For Dreaming stories, this is the 'must have' book for every school in Australia.

  • The Black Goanna
  • The Witchetty Grub Man Dreaming
  • Kalpartu the Dreamtime Snake

It includes sketched pictures from each story, which could be photocopied for your own children to colour and compare to the beautiful artwork in the book. Notes next to each illustration, giving the artwork symbol definitions in written form, helps to educate about Aboriginal art symbols.
