Tjulpu and Walpa


1 in stock

This is the story of two girls: Tjulpu and Walpa.

It is the story of two children who end up travelling down very different roads.

Tjulpu is the bird that sings. Tjulpu’s story is about a girl who had all the love and support she needed to grow up strong, healthy and happy. Walpa is the wind. Walpa’s story is about a girl who was blown around from place to place – just like the wind.

These stories show how the care we give a child, shapes their behaviour. It helps us to see that behaviour is like an anthill. We can see the anthill rising up, but there are are other things – like children’s experiences and their needs – hidden beneath the surface.
