Written by Adam Briggs, illustrated by Kate Moon and Rachael Sarra, published by Hardie Grant.

‘Our Home, Our Heartbeat’ is written by Yorta-Yorta rapper Briggs, based on his popular song ‘The Children Came Back’. The book is a celebration of Aboriginal legends and culture past and present, honouring and inspiring the oldest continuous culture on earth.

The book features beautiful illustrations showing children being inspired by, and living out the successes of, heroes such as Nova Peris, Wanganeen, Cathie Freeman, and Archie Roach – among others.

Readers in the UK will be introduced to new role models in the form of this collection of inspirational and historically important First Nations people from across history.
