Part of the First Knowledges for younger readers series, this is an adaptation for younger readers of the critically acclaimed Songlines book. The reader is invited to ‘walk together through the oldest, biggest library of knowledge on earth’ to gain an understanding of a term often heard, but not easily understood. The book is divided into nine chapters with Dreaming stories linked to each chapter. Your Turn, which concludes each section asks thoughtful questions and suggests activities. The layout and design are organised with real thoughtfulness, intentionally and a considered approach as extensive knowledge of culture is captured. The book provides a deeper understanding of songlines which are more than a navigational path but hold vast stores of information encoded through song, dance, art and ceremony. Knowledge is stored in the land, sea and sky.
