A perfect read-aloud story which revels in the kaleidoscopic colours of the Australian landscape featuring Indigenous art by Balarinji.

The land bakes...RED. The sun sets...ORANGE. The dawn glows...GOLD. The flowers burst...YELLOW.

A joyous serenade to colours that show country before a storm, illustrated by Balarinji, Australia's leading Indigenous design studio.

Ros Moriarty, author of the acclaimed memoir Listening to Country, is also the founder of Indi Kindi early learning program.

About the Author

Ros Moriarty, formerly a journalist with Radio Australia in Indigenous affairs, women's issues and the environment, has spent most of her professional life as creative and managing director of Australia's leading Indigenous design studio, Balarinji, a business she established with her husband in 1983. Balarinji is best known for covering Qantas 747 aircraft in Indigenous art.

During 27 years of delivering groundbreaking projects, including the Emu Dreaming tutu for the Australian Ballet's 40th birthday and the Hands across the Land poster for the 2000 Sydney Harbour Bridge Walk for Reconciliation, the company has fostered the careers of Indigenous artists and designers from all over Australia, and has returned royalties to NT artists since 1995. Ros also co-founded the not-for-profit Moriarty Foundation, which includes Indi Kindi early literacy education, and has won many awards for business and citizenship.

Author of four books for very young readers, the acclaimed memoir Listening to Country, and an Indigenous colouring-in book, Colouring Country, Ros lives with her husband, John Moriarty, in her favourite city in the world, Sydney. They have three adult children.


What Educators are saying:

"I want to share with you a lovely work that my children did last week. I run a Family Day Care, my children and I love reading stories and we really enjoy Ros Moriarty and Balarinji books. Personally, I believe books are a fantastic educational resource. Books are versatile and educators can develop so many different activities to extend the reading. Last week, my children and I were exploring sensory bins, painting and construction activities inspired by The Rainbow book. And, of course, the book was part of our daily story time." - Mariana Gabriela Alarcón Herrera
