Summary
This book contains fourteen songs, ten in Walmajarri language and four in English, beautifully illustrated by the students from the Yakanarra Community School. There are songs about how the Walmajarri came to Yakanarra, their special places, the animals and birds and the sounds that they make, hunting, fishing and collecting bush food, and more. The songs, sung to the tunes of well known classics, were written to help the kids at Yakanarra speak Walmajarri, but this is a book to be treasured and enjoyed by everyone
