About Us



Kindamindi is an Aboriginal word which means 'to laugh'. Our logo, naturally is the Australian laughing bird known as the kookaburra or the jackass.

Kindamindi Publishing is a small Sydney-based company which was set up to produce anthologies of performance poetry for children of all ages. Poetry which is FUN to read. In fact these 'Giggles & Dreams' poetry books have been responsible for encouraging a great number of poor readers to WANT to read. Children readily identify with the poems and make them their own.

Annette Kosseris-Haynes ATCL, LKSDA, ASDA. LSDA. founded the business in 1994. She is a poet, Speech & Drama teacher adjudicator, publisher, a wife and a mother of four. She takes great delight in seeing children happily expressing themselves in a natural manner whether performing on stage, at school assemblies, eisteddfods, examinations or at home. Therefore the poetry she publishes - her own and contributions from fellow poets - is told from the perspective of a child. It is both comical and sensitive, but above all FUN to read and/or perform!
