Teaching Indigenous Australian learners to read and write in familiar language, while learning oral Standard English.

The Honey Ant Readers are a unique and innovative series of learn-to-read books with supplementary resources.

Developed with the support of traditional Elders the Honey Ant Readers make learning for Australian Indigenous learners relevant, meaningful, engaging and fun.

The Honey Ant Readers help teach reading and writing in the context of Indigenous culture, building on familiar language. Print literacy learning theories are integrated with Indigenous culture - the result of a collaboration between Indigenous Elders and non-Indigenous educators.
