Vullah Vunnah Nah is a Gunditjmara lullaby, translated into English by Patricia Clarke. She has included both English and Gunditjmara words in the text and illustrated them with bright rainbows. This simple song could be mastered in the classroom quickly and shared with others. It also reminds that to have a rainbow, there must be rain, providing an opportunity for classroom discussion (on many levels). One spread, that with the English words is removable, providing the option of just presenting the text in the Gunditjamara language. Included is a CD.
A colourful and useful title for early primary classrooms.
