“This beautiful picture book presents the voice of an Indigenous child relating the importance of knowing and living your culture . . . This book is perfect for Indigenous children who are finding their place in the revitalisation of Indigenous culture around Australia, and will also appeal to primary school aged children learning about Indigenous culture - Indigenous dance, music, instruments, spirituality, and connection to Country are all featured.”
Cassie Lynch, Books + Publishing
“Beautifully written and illustrated, My Culture and Me is a heartfelt and stirring story of cherishing and sustaining Indigenous cultures, although there is relevance and applicability to all cultures whatever they may be, especially if the message of his dedication is read in its broadest terms . . . An important addition to your indigenous literature collection and curriculum.”
Barbara Braxton, Teacher Librarian, thebottomshelf.edublogs.org
“Indigenous author and illustrator shares his culture and his deep connection to Country. Words and pictures will inspire all readers to learn more about our beautiful country.”
Margaret Hamilton, Pinerolo Newsletter
“In this vibrantly illustrated and lyrically written book Gregg explores and elucidates beautiful highlights of Indigenous culture – a ‘call to arms’ almost for all Australians, whether Indigenous or not, to admire the affinity with country and culture held dear by First Australians.”
Sue Warren, Just So Stories
“While this book will be particularly poignant for those with Aboriginal heritage, the message of proudly embracing one's cultural heritage is universal. It's also a good introduction to children of Indigenous cultures and the narrative's rhyming words are soothing and engaging.”
