Product Details

Praise

Kids may pick up Welcome to Country: A Traditional Aboriginal Ceremony expecting something less abstract, but they won’t be disappointed. Murphy’s book-length meditation invoking Wurundjeri customs and values is beguiling, and Lisa Kennedy’s acrylic paintings—some so multilayered that they could pass for embroidered tapestries—are dazzlers…While Welcome to Country uses the distinctive voice of the Wurundjeri of Australia, it speaks to everyone.
—Shelf Awareness for Readers

Richly pigmented illustrations in a traditional style depict the close connection between people, animals, land, and elements. There is a formality in the tone of the text that some readers might find unusual but not unfriendly. This unique picture book lends itself easily to social studies curricula, but its poetic qualities should not be overlooked.
