    One thought on “Stolen Girl”

    1. Stolen Girl (Magabala 2011), written by Trina Saffioti and illustrated by Norma McDonald, is another effort in ensuring that Australian children are engaged in history while being drawn in by inspiring mixed-media illustrations.Works like these are essential for use in the classroom, for Australian children to understand their own sense of privilege – then and now – compared to Aboriginal children removed from their families in the past.

    2. Stolen Girl captures the emotions of just one girl who was a part of something much larger - 100,000 Australian children who were taken from their homes and have have been referred to as the 'Stolen Generation.'The reader joins "the girl" as she wakes, again, to the sound of the bell at the children's home. Her mind wanders to her life with her mother, to before, as she attempts to understand what is going on." 'When am I going home?' she asks.'You ain't. None of us are,' say the older girls.Thi [...]

    3. It was good but a little bit sad. It was about a girl that was taken from her mum because she was a Aboriginal. I gave it 4 stars because I didnt get to see if the people who owned the home for girls found her or if the girl got back to her mum. I really liked it and I wish the author made another one!

    4. Words fail me for the sadness! Still I think it is very trusting of children to have adapted this awful event in a way that is truth telling, but leaves a hopeful ending- encouraging children to dream more liberative possibilities from their growing awareness of injustice. Would have to be used with great care with small children (but certainly could be used with older ones too)

    5. The pictures didn't really do much for me - not really my style. It's still a good read though - really heartbreaking. The stolen girl (she is never given a name) pines for her mother and her home. Brings home the despair and loneliness of life in the mission, and leaves a hopeful, open ending.
