Welcome Song for Baby: A lullaby for newborns

Orca Book Publishers have produced a stunning new board book written by renowned First Nations storyteller Richard Van Camp. Welcome Song for Baby is a lullaby that welcomes a child into the world: “the sun rises for you/the earth welcomes you/we raise our hands to you.” It is a song and a chant and a celebration of the joy a new baby brings into the world. The full page, full-colour photographs are stunning. Each photo focuses on beautiful baby faces from many cultures. Like Robert Munsch’s Love You Forever, Welcome Song for Baby is a book that honours the precious bond between parent and child.
