A story about how children from Yuluwirri Kids Preschool keep safe as passengers, pedestrians and at play when out and about on camping adventures and travelling with their families. Includes water safety, sun safety and road safety education messages for children aged 0-8 years.
Illustrated with an engaging mixture of photos, children’s drawings and Aboriginal artwork depicting culture and safe travel journeys.
Features the local Aboriginal `Gamilaraay’ language, together with fun road safety rhymes and questions to encourage young children to tell their own safe journey stories.
Teaching and learning extension ideas around maps, music, literacy, numeracy and Aboriginal artworks are included to promote conversations with children and families about keeping safe when out and about.
A useful resource to help early childhood educators grow in their ongoing cultural competence journey as it relates to working with Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families.
“I feel with Yuluwirri Preschool and this book that we can pass our cultures on, pass our language on, there for all Australians” (Aunty Maureen Sulter, a local Aboriginal Elder and Gamilaraay woman).
