Little Yarns

Little Yarns is a weekly program designed for pre-school children listeners and their parents or teachers. Produced by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC, last featured in the 04-09-2021 Scout Report) as part the ABC Kids listen suite of programs, Little Yarns is dedicated to educating children about the unique languages and cultures of Australia's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nations. Each episode introduces listeners to a word from an Australian Indigenous language through journeys to different parts of the continent and stories told by first language speakers. For instance, in the February 17, 2020 episode, listeners can learn the Yugambeh word for "mother" and reflect on how they can care for Mother Nature. Episodes are less than 10 minutes long, making them perfect for bedtime, naptime, or to break up other activities. Little Yarns and similar ABC programs are available on the page linked above. They can also be downloaded as MP3 files or accessed through ABC Kids listen app for easy listening on long car rides. Little Yarns is hosted by Rudi Bremer, ABC radio broadcaster and Gamilaraay speaker.
