The Better Beginnings Indigenous Program is undergoing many improvements including the development of the Little Fulla Yarns reading pack which launched in November 2021. Little Fulla Yarns aims to support Aboriginal families in remote communities to Read, Yarn, Sing, Draw and Play with their little fulla every day. The program is currently being rolled out in the Kimberley region.
The Little Fulla Yarns pack includes:
- Three books by Aboriginal Australian authors
- Fun activities to support families to share each of the books
- An alphabet chart
- Puppets and clapping sticks for telling stories and singing
- An information flyer for families
- A backpack to keep all of this and other treasures in!
If you would like to connect with our Noongar digital resources, please see our Better Beginnings YouTube channel for some fun stories, rhymes and counting in Noongar.
The State Library subscribes to a range of eResources that families can access from home for free using their public library membership card.
As part of The Walmajarri Language Stories Project, we have digitised books in Walmajarri, Kriol and English from Kadjina Aboriginal Community. Check it out on the State Library of Western Australia’s catalogue.
You can show your little ones photos and stories relating to their heritage by visiting the State Library's Storylines Archive. This collection is created by Aboriginal communities, for Aboriginal communities. Images and histories are kept and displayed in culturally safe ways, and you and your family can contribute your own photos and stories to the collection.
