To land singing you back home
Listen to its language
Learn how to speak its song'

From the award-winning creator of Baby Business (2019) and Cooee Mittigar (2019) comes a stunning bilingual story of healing and belonging.

Told in English and Dharug; Open Your Heart to Country is a moving account of reconnection to Country from a First Nations perspective. Sharing the nourishing power of returning home and being immersed in the language of Country; this picture book invites readers to reflect on the importance of place; not only for First Nations' peoples but for everyone.

With exquisite illustrations and soft; lilting text; Open Your Heart to Country appeals to the very young; while sharing a deeper message for older readers. A book the whole family can enjoy.

'Open Your Heart to Country is the stunning fourth picture book from Dharug woman and award-winning author/illustrator Jasmine Seymour. It's a story of welcome and belonging told in two languages; illustrated using Seymour's signature technique; which combines painting; printmaking and digital collage...This is an exquisite book whose simple; lyrical narrative and feeling of gentle encouragement will appeal to readers aged three and up.' — Jacqui Davies; Books+Publishing
