I didn’t realize just how many different Australian Aboriginal books for children there are available until our last trip to Australia. I found so many amazing Aboriginal kids’ books in the bookshops!

I was immediately attracted to this book by the beautiful cover with stars made in watercolour and ink. In this picture book, Mother and Father swan are busy rebuilding their nest after a storm when their baby, Ninni Yabini, wanders off. Luckily, the evening star, his namesake, comes out to guide him home.
What is special, is that the book written in both Noongar (the language of Aboriginal Australian peoples who live in the south-west corner of Western Australia) and English.
