"Today we shared a very special story about the Uluru Statement, with the children during Bush kinder. Finding Our Heart, written by Thomas Mayor, is a beautifully written story that won our hearts instantly. The story gently explains the Uluru Statement to children using engaging language and beautiful illustrations. We always know a story has been really 'heard' when it promotes robust discussion, questioning and empathy. his is just what Find Our Heart did for us today. It is wonderful story and highly recommended by our most diligent and dedicated 4 yo early readers. This book is really important and essential resource for learning about our history. Thank you for the Koori Curriculum for delivering this story to us so quickly."
"I read this to my year 1/2's when we talked about our acknowledgement this week. I asked the kids how they think we can show respect to the land and local Aboriginal people and one of the kids said we need to listen to our hearts and our brain to make the right choices to be respectful. So honest and true" - Lauren Michelle
