Ambelin and Ezekiel Kwaymullina (who happen to be from the Bailgu and Nyamal peoples of the Pilbara region of Western Australia) present The Two-Hearted Numbat, a children's picturebook told in the style of a folktale. Simple, charming color illustrations bring to life the story of a numbat (a small native Australian marsupial) who is torn between choosing a heart of stone that promotes strength and self-confidence at the expense of caring about others, and a feather-heart that promotes compassion for others at the expense of caring about oneself. The wisest of the numbats sends the two-hearted numbat on a journey to the Thinking Log, to discover the truth for himself. Only his heart of compassion can help him see the distress of a dingo that blocks his path, and only the heart of stone can lend him the courage to leap over a river. The numbat gains wisdom, and becomes a great leader. "'I once thought I had to choose between being as strong as a stone, or as gentle as a feather. But now I know that no one is truly strong who does not also have the softness to care for others. And no one is truly caring of others who does not also have the strength to care for themselves.'" A delightful parable with an important moral, highly recommended.
