It’s said in some Indian nations that babies are especially sacred because they’ve just come from the Spirit World. This is a song of hope, a song of joy, a song of celebration, an honoring song for babies and the promise they bring to the universe.

Available in hardcover only.  Richard Van Camp (Dogrib), Welcome Song for Baby: A lullaby for newborns. 2007, color photos.

It’s said in some Indian nations that babies are especially sacred because they’ve just come from the Spirit World. In making this lovely little board book, Van Camp said he went back into his heart and mind to the potlatches, giveaways and feasts to witness the honoring and spirit of celebration and becoming a family. The color photographs, of babies together with their parents, together with other babies, asleep, sleepy and looking at their new world, complement Van Camp’s lullaby. Welcome Song is a song of hope, a song of joy, a song of celebration, an honoring song for babies and the promise they bring to the universe.
