Summary

Baby Business tells the story of the 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.

The book offers an ancient First Nations' ritual brought into present-day context. Includes teachers' notes linked to the Australian Curriculum.
