AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'With a poem written by young Tamzyne Richardson as its centerpiece, My Home Broome captures the heart and soul of the multicultural town of Broome in Australia’s north west. Developed as a community project, artist and illustrator Bronwyn Houston worked with twelve talented students from Broome primary schools to illustrate Tamzyne’s poem. The result is a breathtaking array of artistic expression by Bronwyn and the students that celebrates the uniqueness of their town and its people.' (Source: Publisher's website)

Works about this Work

BlackWords : Children's Literature About Country Anita Heiss , 2015 single work criticism
— Appears in: The BlackWords Essays 2015; (p. 6)

In this essay Heiss addresses the increasing number of Aboriginal authored children's and young adult literature published that focuses on the 'meaning of place' in an Indigenous context. She demonstrates this by selecting writings and stories from regions such as remote, semi-remote and desert to tropics, which showcase the diversity of life in different parts of Indigenous Australia and the essence of Aboriginal storytelling.

— Review of My Home Broome Tamzyne Richardson , 2012 single work picture book

'At Yalbillinga Boori Day Care Centre we are always looking for good quality books about Indigenous cultures. We look for books that parents can share with children aged zero to five years. My Home Broome is not for this age range, but we have got a lot out of this book as we have found it useful to engage our community. This book shows children, parents and community members possibilities for sharing their own stories. It came at a good time for Yalbillinga because we were looking at ways for community to share stories for young people.'  (Introduction)
