This multilingual board book is a celebration of childbirth and families. Illustrated in a colourful photographic style the book presents simply and modestly the concept of ‘growing a baby’ from conception through to being a much loved and welcome member of a family.
The book has a companion CD of lullaby and action songs in two of the languages of the area, Burarra and Ndjébbana and one song in English. Both were created by the Maningrida Playgroup and the community in conjunction with the Families as First Teachers Program and the Northern Territory Library.
Maningrida is one of the largest Aboriginal towns in the Northern Territory. It is situated approximately 500km east of Darwin in Arnhem Land, at the mouth of the Liverpool River. Maningrida is an Anglicised version of the Kunibídji name Manayingkarírra, which comes from the phrase Mane djang karirra, meaning ‘the place where the Dreaming changed shape’. There are some 15 different languages spoken in the area. There are three main language dialects that are spoken, they are: Djebenna, Burrada & Kunwinku. Its main totem is ‘Djormi dreaming’ which is little children dreaming.
