May O’Brien (d.2020)
Out of stock
Four wonderful traditional teaching stories of the Wongutha people, plus May O’Brien’s stories about her early life as a Mission child, are collected here for a new generation of junior readers.
First published as individual titles in 1992, May O’Brien’s stories were ground-breaking publications, presenting traditional Indigenous stories in a bilingual text and giving a unique insight into learning English as a second language from a First Nations perspective. The stories are still as fresh and appealing as ever, and May’s simple pronunciation guide for Wongutha words are perfect learning activities for the classroom.
