These 5 books are part of the HAR learn-to-read series.  New words are added to each book and there is a lot of repetition of the words from the previous books, which builds confidence and fluent reading.

These are the SAE edition of HARs 11 to 15. They are written for learners who have read book 10 and who speak SAE and learners who want to compare the SAE text with the original ‘language of the playground’ edition. The AE edition is written in an intra-language between light Aboriginal English and Standard English.

HAR 11 recounts the story of 3 children who go out hunting for bushtucker with Nana. HAR 12 is the traditional story of the Rainbow Serpent as told to the author by Trudy Inkamala, an Elder and keeper of the story. HAR 13 tells the traditional story of a woman who swops her baby for another. The mother whose baby she takes eventually finds her baby again, returns the woman”s bigger baby that was left in the coolamon, and all ends happily. This story was told to the author by Trudy Inkamala, so that it could be used to teach Aborignal children to read. HAR 14 tells the story of 2 sisters who go out hunting for bush tucker. A ”bad” young man comes along and causes mischief…but it all ends happily. This story was also given to the author by Trudy Inkamala to use in the HAR so that children can read stories that are familiar to them, and in order to preserve the stories in writing. HAR 15 tells the story of a family who go out hunting for perentie. This story is based on real life experiences of people in Central Australia. Alison Furber, a Central Arrernte teacher, generously assisted the author with the facts.
