SHORTLISTED, 2018 SPEECH PATHOLOGY AUSTRALIA BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARDS, INDIGENOUS CHILDREN CATEGORY
An environmental tale for Early Childhood and Lower Primary readers that shows how animals are affected by rubbish left in their habitat by humans. Ambelin Kwaymullina’s illustrations are an explosion of colour and cleverly show the perils faced by our native animals. When the animals work as a team to come up with ways to look after the bush, they decide to ask the humans to REDUCE, RECYCLE and use RUBBISH BINS. But it is Benny Bungarra who has the bright idea of a BIG BUSH CLEAN-UP so the animals can also help look after the bush.
"Benny Bungarra’s Big Bush Clean-up is an animal tale with a strong environmental message… making this book a great teaching tool for the classroom. Kwaymullina’s gorgeous, colourful art is always a joy, no matter your age."
– Bronte Coates, Books + Publishing
"Ambelin Kwaymullina's bold illustrations, fun colourful creatures and bright borders bring to life the simple but important messages of Sally Morgan's story."
