Of course this is not the first book to celebrate the love with which they are received into their family for our littlest of readers, but it is one that specifically allows for our youngest First Australians to recognise themselves.
Sally Morgan’s simple but beautiful text, accompanied as it is with riotously colourful illustrations, is utterly exquisite and touching.
Stars alight, singing birds and dancing flowers combine to welcome the new child with all the warmth and unconditional love that families feel when they first embrace their child.
Birds sing songs of delight to greet you.
Flowers dance with joy to celebrate you.
Without doubt this would make a beautiful and much-appreciated gift for any newborn of your acquaintance, and one that will bring great joy with each repeated reading.
If you have a new little human in your circle, or indeed expecting one this delightful and vibrant board book will make a perfect welcome present.
Highly recommended for tiny peeps from birth onwards.
