Summary In this fabulous book of fourteen songs, ten in Wolmajarri language and four in English, all beautifully illustrated by the kids from the Yakanarra Community School. There are songs about how the Wolmajarri come 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 Wolmajarri, but this is a book to be treasured and enjoyed by everyone
