“Sorry Sorry” is a new picture book for children by Anne Kerr, a kindergarten teacher from Brisbane. The book uses simple language and images (both by Anne) to explain what European settlement meant for indigenous Australians, and why the Prime Minister on behalf of the Australian people, said “Sorry” to the first inhabitants of this country.
At the end of the book, Anne provides some excellent suggestions for educators using the book with young children. These invite groups to look at indigenous art and hear from local indigenous people. Anne’s years of teaching experience shine through the whole book.
The book cover painting is by Marda Pitt, an indigenous woman from north Queensland.
Review: “I have received my order yesterday. Love Love Love Sorry Sorry – I read it in my yarning circle today and the children (preschool) were so engaged and asked lots of questions. It’s a must have book that’s for sure”. – Tracey Pike, Goodstart Early Learning.
