Happy to be me
Summary Tucker is an adaptation of an Aunty Wendy's Mob song on the 'happy to be me' CD. Indigenous mob, long time ago, ate from the bush and loved it so. Tucker was hunted and collected from the land. There was no white sugar or food in cans
The eight picture books in this series each feature a single song from the happy to be me CD, illustrated by an Australian indigenous artist. The books provide a rich visual representation of the much-loved lyrics and messages of acceptance, cultural identity and sense of belonging of the happy to be me songs. The artists vary from professional to amateur, and have used traditional and contemporary styles that range from the Central Desert, Cape York Peninsula and urban New South Wales. The authentic artwork in the books brings deeper meaning to the songs and provides teachers with a colourful and engaging resource for the classroom. The series supports and extends the journey of learning for children as they explore, celebrate and develop a deeper understanding of Aboriginal culture. The h̀appy to be me' series was written by Wendy Notley, who is a non-Aboriginal early childhood trained teacher
