The Indigenous Literacy Foundation today launched an app that aims to help Indigenous children in remote communities learn to read.

The app has translated Eric Hill’s famous children book Where’s Spot? into Ngaanyatjarra language as Wanytjatja Spotnga?

Children will be able to listen to and read the book in English and their first language.

It’s being launched at a playgroup in Warburton in Western Australia and across the Ngaanyatjarra communities.

The ILF is also running a campaign called the Great Book Swap, the idea is that you exchange a favourite book for another for a gold coin donation.
