This is a pre-reading booklet designed for the Ngaanyatjarra speaking people of Warburton Ranges and others scattered at various centres throughout the Desert areas of Western Australia.
There are usually about 300 Ngaanyatjarra speakers at the Warburton Ranges settlement.
The initial syllables of the illustrated words are organized alphabetically throughout the book, words having the same initial syllable occurring on a single page. It is intended that the saying of the words on each page will help the pupil to develop aural awareness of the sounds in the language.
