My Country is filled to the brim with exciting colours and lively illustrations of a little girl immersed in the beautiful qualities of her country. From the Morning’s Star to the lightning clouds, all are portrayed in a manner which celebrates nature. The joyful expressions of all who can be found amongst these pages – from the smiley protagonist, the emus, the moon and the sun – this is a picture book representing pure enjoyment.
My Country is the first picture book to be illustrated by Sally Morgan, Indigenous Literacy Project Ambassador, in over a decade. Both she and author Ezekiel Kwaymullina belong to the Palyku people from Pilbara, Western Australian. The duo teamed up with the intention of creating a book that would celebrate country, and this one certainly achieves the aim of its creators!
Follow this gorgeous girl as she swims, splashes, slides, dances and dreams her way through each stunning page of this picture book .. then go outside and enjoy it for yourselves! Have fun!
“I love my country”
