Finding the Heart of the Nation

The Journey of the Uluru Statement towards Voice, Treaty and Truth, by Thomas Mayor (Hardie Grant, 2019)

This is a book for all Australians. Since the Uluru Statement from the Heart was created in 2017, Thomas Mayor has travelled throughout the country to promote its vision of a better future for Indigenous Australians. He’s visited communities big and small, often with the Uluru Statement canvas rolled up in a tube under his arm.

Through the story of his own journey and interviews with 20 key people, Mayor taps into a deep sense of our shared humanity. The voices within these chapters make clear what the Uluru Statement is and why it is so important. He hopes you will join the growing movement of Australians who want to see substantive constitutional change.

Mayor believes we will only find the heart of our nation when the First Peoples –Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders – are recognised with a representative Voice enshrined in the Australian Constitution.

How Animals Build

Moira Butterfield and Tim Hutchinson, (Lonely Planet Kids, 2017) – two copies

This is a beautifully illustrated lift-the-flap hardback that explores the incredible world of animal architects. Children can open flaps and unfold spreads to discover amazing animal homes up high, underground, on land, and under the sea. From spider webs and rabbit warrens to birds’ nests ant colonies and even coral reefs and beaver lodges, we reveal the secrets to these extraordinary structures and how they’re constructed.

Do bees need cement mixers to build hives? Do beavers use cranes to construct dams? No, of course not! Like many animals, they’re building geniuses who don’t need building site tools to create incredible work. Welcome to nature’s very own, super-clever world of construction.

This book was created in consultation with wildlife expert, speaker, photographer and filmographer Michael Leach, who is also the author of more than 20 books on subjects ranging from big cats and owls to great apes and bears.
