This book has been developed together with Aboriginal parents, families and professionals. It is for you to read with your baby. Being close to you, seeing the pictures and hearing your voice helps baby grow strong. The pictures are for baby to look at - they are the kind of pictures research says babies like. At the end of the book there are ideas for making books part of your life as baby grows up. There are also words in some Aboriginal languages for you to use if you like. We hope that you and your baby enjoy sharing this book. Aunties, uncles, sisters, brothers and grandparents can read with baby too!
