'We walk together' children's book

In July, 2018 we worked with Kids' Own Publishing, the Wurundjeri Land and Compensation Cultural Heritage Council, Yarn Strong Sista and Labcoat Learning to create a new children’s book.

We walk together features artwork and a story by children from Avondale Heights Kindergarten. The children were inspired by visits to Canning Street Reserve along the Maribyrnong River.

The kids took part in six workshops, including a smoking ceremony with Wurundjeri Elders, native planting, artistic workshops and learning how to put books together.

Designed as an early childhood resource to educate children about Wurundjeri culture and history, we hope the book will encourage families to access our parks and reserves more often.

Download a copy of We Walk Together (pdf, 11MB) or read it at our libraries and kindergartens.
