Sometimes grown ups tell scary stories to teach kids a lesson. And sometimes those scary stories turn out to be true.
Sarah, Jay and Rene find out the hard way what sort of tale their nan's woordatj story is when they wander off into the bush despite her warnings.
Waarda, Nyungar for talking and sharing stories and information, is an exciting new Indigenous children's series. Edited by Sally Morgan, the series is designed to support the literacy needs of Indigenous children in primary school, by making available to them stories written by Indigenous authors.
At the same time, it will introduce non-Indigenous children to the richness and depth of Indigenous storytelling. Above all, it is a collection of fun, interesting and diverse first chapter books for new readers.
"The story is intended to instill caution and respect for the bush . . . Chapters are short and perfect for readers in transition from picture books to novels." --Aussie reviews.com
