Birrarung Wilam - A Story by Aunty Joy Murphy and Andrew Kelly. 

Shortlisted for the CBCA 2020 Eve Pownall Award for factual material presented in an imaginative way this is an educational book about one day on the Yarra River. As ngua, the sun, rises, Bunjil, the wedge tailed eagle, soars over mountain ash, flying higher and higher as the wind warms. Below, Birrarung, the Yarra River, begins its long winding path down to palem warren, the salt water bay. Activities for this book include decorating an eagle with patterns, matching Woirurrung words to their English equivalent, a find-a-word of animals found along the Yarra River or Birrarung, handwriting with English and Woirurrung words and drawing pictures for Woirurrung words with their English translation.
