Listen to author and artist Aunty Gloria Whalan, as she tells the story of Guulaangga, the Green Tree Frog. Gloria is an elder of the Morwell community, though she grew up in Lithgow, NSW. Her people are the Wiradjuri, from around the Blue Mountains in NSW. This story is inspired by Gloria's experiences growing up on a farm. Her grandmother taught her to appreciate all creatures great and small, and their place in the natural environment. After watching this clip, try writing your own story about something your grandparents taught you.
