Richard Van Camp, internationally renowned storyteller and bestselling author of the hugely successful Welcome Song for Baby: A Lullaby for Newborns, has partnered with talented illustrator Julie Flett to create a tender board book for babies and toddlers that honors the child in everyone. With its delightful contemporary illustrations, Little You is perfect to be shared, read or sung to all the little people in your life, and the new little ones on the way!
Van Camp composes a lyrical ode to a newborn child, which is matched in its loveliness by Flett s exquisite, collage-like images of a young one with his or her parents. Both collaborators are of aboriginal Canadian descent, and the book will have particular appeal for families looking for nonwhite representations of tender family moments. But families of every size, shape, and background can appreciate sentiments like, You are life and breath adored/ You are us and so much more/ Little ember with growing light/ Feel our love as we hold you tight. Up to age 3.
