New Title from Timor Leste

The children of Delecu in Timor Leste  have  written and illustrated a lovely book.  The story of the book is itself an amazing tale  of cross cultural experience. When Katrina Powell read  “From Little things Big Things Grow” to her class in Delecu she had no idea it would unleash a new partnership of language and community as her students took the text and story and made it their own.

The Kev Carmody/Paul Kelly iconic song  From Little Things Big Things Grow is now an inspiration for the dreams of a new generation of kids in Timor Leste.

Edita de Jesus one of the young students and teacher Katrina Powell spoke about the inspiration of the Gurindji people, having chalk for school and going shopping in Brisbane, during their book launch tour here in Australia.

You can purchase this book online.  Funds raised from sales  will assist the Edmund Rice Primary School and distribution in East Timor.
