The graphic below introduces you to the 10 Australian Tribe animals, their main emotions (more are spoken about within the book:), and the skills they teach.  Look through and see which animal highlights you and/or your child the most.  While we are actually capable of being all of the animals and we should aim to embody all of them, we will define more with some than others.  The others are often the skills we need to develop.   My eldest often loves listening to TD’s and Drew’s chapters.  My youngest sees himself most in Frill and Brydie.
