Tell Me Why

A Yamatji woman, Robyn Templeton is a Western Australian artist who with her daughter, Sarah Jackson, co-wrote and illustrated Tell Me Why a true story about Sarah's search for identity and desire to understand her Aboriginality. Tell Me Why is a picture book that encourages children to ask questions about their heritage and respect different cultures. This is Sarah Jackson’s story, but it is also the story of so many others dealing with society’s preconceived ideas about Aboriginality and using skin colour to determine identity
