Bilingual Children’s Book Project

Mildura Rural City Council in partnership with other community groups is developing a series of children's books in both English and other community languages in our region.

A series of writing workshops took place in May and June 2023, and since then our volunteer writers have been joined by volunteer translators and illustrators.

Our latest illustration workshop featured Gary Davis from Gary Davis Illustration & Design, who offered some useful suggestions and guidance on mapping out each book.

All up the group is working on 11 unique children’s storybooks in English and another community languages, including Dari, Kirundi, Filipino, Uyghur and more.

As each book is finished, they will then be made available on our webpage to hear read in different languages. Stay tuned for more updates!
