With stunning photographs and illustrations, this book is a fascinating insight, from earliest times to today, into the experiences of Indigenous children, whose land was, and is, their playground

There are things which Indigenous children have been doing for thousands upon thousands of years. In traditional times, kids didn't have to go to school. The land was their school, and their playground. Since European people have come to Australia, Aboriginal children have taken on some new games and toys, but they have continued to practice their culture. Whether they live on a remote outstation or in a busy city, Indigenous kids are still learning from country, and from their community.
