Baby Business

Warm smoke from the fire on your mouth.
Keep our language on your tongue.
Our words are the song of our ancestors and show the pathway to Dreaming.

Baby Business tells the story of a Darug baby smoking ceremony that welcomes baby to country. The smoke is a blessing – it will protect the baby and remind them that they belong. This beautiful ritual is recounted in a way young children will completely relate to and is enhanced by gentle illustrations.

Darug language words are integrated throughout. Central to this stunning story is a message of connection to Country and the need to care for it. Written and illustrated by Jasmine Seymour and read by Bianca Hunt
