New book teaches young to cher­ish Earth

Joondalup Times - - FRONT PAGE - Sara Fitz­patrick

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.
