This bilingual edition - in Mangala and English introduces non-Indigenous Australians to one of the five languages spoken at Bidyadanga (La Grange). The illustrations by and photographs of the students from La Grange KindiLink and Remote Community School reveal the joy the students felt in making this board book. It's a bright, beautiful and fun board book that is perfect for the youngest readers to learn the names of various parts of their body in their home language.

Karrkin features line drawings and gorgeous photographs, each with arrows pointing to the part of the body being referred to in the text. Young readers will delight in saying the name in Mangala and in English while pointing to the relevant part of the body in the book and on their own body. The book was created at an ILF workshop at Bidyadanga facilitated by ILF ambassador Alison Lester and Jane Godwin.

Bidyadanga Aboriginal Community (La Grange) is located on the Kimberley coast in Western Australia, 1,590 kilometres north of Perth and 180 kilometres south of Broome. Bidyadanga is the largest remote Aboriginal community in Western Australia, with a population of approximately 750 residents.
