"Our home, our heartbeat is a wonderful picture book that celebrates Indigenous success in all its many forms. The old adage "you can't be what you can't see' is the central theme of this book and puts First Nations People front and centre and shows children a range of people from many different fields being successful. This book perfectly captures how children copy their idols through play and the illustrations by Kate Moon and Rachael Sarra are a loving depiction of childhood fun and joy.
The book also contains a description of each Indigenous person or group, as well as their achievements to highlight their important work and contributions. With the use of strong colour and short, sharp words the message is simple to understand and enjoy at any age. This book is also important in displaying the diversity of Indigenous achievement and is a celebration of excellence. It would make a great addition to any bookcase"
