Respect

Aunty Fay Muir, Sue Lawson, Lisa Kennedy

Respect is about a way of life that is older than flickering stars, about stories that shimmer through tall grasses, and redgum leaves that tumble to a parched and red earth. It teaches children the importance of family who show the way and how we need to listen, learn and share.

A tender, thoughtful story reminding us to respect others and respect ourselves. Part of the Our Place series which welcomes children to Indigenous Australian culture.

Respect presents a code that everyone can live by — and it does so in a poetic and visually delicious package. It’s a history lesson, a cultural lesson, and a universal creed rolled into one perfect picture book.

- Liz Patterson, CBCA Reading Time

Aunty Fay Muir and Sue Lawson...have collaborated with artist Lisa Kennedy to deliver this absolutely exquisite picture book...Muir and Lawson’s sparse text is offset by Kennedy’s luminous images, which come alive on the page.
