Our Mob

Our Mob by Jacinta Daniher and Taylor Hampton, illustrated by Seantelle Walsh (Ford Street Publishing) PB RRP $17.95 ISBN 9781922696236

Reviewed by Kylie Buckley

Our Mob introduces its audience to 14 proud Aboriginal children from 14 different traditional countries. Each child greets the reader in their traditional language and tells them which country they are from. Then they describe something they and their family like to do together, including playing music, cooking, storytelling, fishing, painting, smoking ceremonies, and bushwalking. The full colour illustrations that complement the text have been beautifully created by contemporary Noongar artist, Seantelle Walsh.

Our Mob is a picture book for early childhood that celebrates the diversity of Aboriginal culture and their connections to family and Country. It encourages everyone to tell their story and be proud of who they are. Our Mob is highly recommended for kindergarten and lower primary school students. The book has been printed in both hardback and paperback.
