Took the Children Away
Archie Roach AM's deeply personal song, ‘Took the Children Away', from his 1990 debut album, Charcoal Lane, was the first song ever to receive a prestigious Australian Human Rights Award. Its impact was immediate, shining a stark light on Australia's shameful past practices of removing children from their families. The song also speaks of love and reconnection and has travelled across seas into the hearts of First Nations communities everywhere. One dark day, when Archie was just two years old, big black government cars came to his home at Framlingham Aboriginal Mission in southwest Victoria. They forcibly took Archie away from his mother, father and family - everything he had ever known. They took away thousands of other Aboriginal children, right around Australia. Powerful people had decided that these children would be better off living and learning all the white man's ways. Frightened and alone, they grew up in institutions and foster homes. They became known as the Stolen Generati

Bug Soup Beat
As night descends, myriad bugs emerge to feast on any tasty morsel they can find in the garden. Mosquitos, scorpions, centipedes, worms and snails enjoy their supper/soup while with their silky thread the spiders weave a sign for the Moth Motel that is strung between the trees. The story is told in rhyming couplets but it is the lively word play that makes this an ideal book to read aloud: ‘falling, flirting, darting, gliding’ the bugs continue ‘crunching, slurping, gulping and sipping’ throughout the evening. The text and colourful illustrations are effectively presented on glossy black paper but the highlight must surely be the fabulous endpapers, those at the front of the book depicting the flying bugs while the back ones show the ground-based bugs. Each element of this picture book demonstrates Monica Reeve’s experience as an author and illustrator. Highly recommended. Age 2-6Read More
