New book teaches young to cherish Earth
IF we don’t look after the environment and its creatures then there will be no Mother Earth to look after us, says author and professor Cheryl Kickett-Tucker.
“This is an important message that young people need to hear, because it is our legacy that we are going to pass to them and they need to know why forests, fresh water, fresh air and varieties of animals are vital in keeping humans alive,” she said.
A deep affection and appreciation of nature is at the heart of the Noongar writer’s new children’s book Bush and Beyond. The release of Bush and Beyond, by Fremantle Press, coincides with Naidoc Week, from July 8 to 15.
