Budburra Books

These books were produced at Cherbourg State School External Link, an Indigenous school in South East Queensland, and are designed to be supportive teaching tools in school classrooms and early years learning centres.

In 2008, the Cherbourg State School implemented a 'Strong and Smart' Early Years Literacy Project, engaging students and community members in the production of books, art and films, by drawing on the cultural strengths, historical ties and artistic skills in the community. This project has evolved into Budburra Books, a not-for-profit organisation, which encourages a love of learning and literacy, and cultivates pride in local Indigenous culture. Producing Budburra Books embeds cultural awareness, local knowledge, interests and creativity for students and provides pathways to explore careers as authors, artists, designers, storytellers, scriptwriters and filmmakers.

To see the complete range, or to make purchases, please visit Budburra Books External Link. All funds raised go towards future literacy projects.
