Little You

by Richard Van Camp
Illustrated by Julie Flett

Published by Orca, 2013
22 pages
ISBN: 978-1-4598-0248-3

Ages birth - 3

A board book from two Native Canadian artists—author Richard Van Camp (Dogrib) and illustrator Julie Flett (Métis/Cree)—is as comforting as a loving embrace for babies and young children. The sense of security is in the lyrical narrative, a gentle, rhyming text that speaks of parents’ joy in and appreciation for their child (“Little you / little wonder / Little wish / gentle thunder”). And it’s in the art, beautifully composed scenes showing loving interactions, or the baby lovingly observed. The striking illustrations have a wonderful sense of color and balance and design as well as delightful elements of playfulness, and older babies and toddlers will find something to look at on every page, from fish to stars to butterflies to the baby—always the baby. The child could be boy or girl in this board book brimming with warmth. (MS) ©2013 Cooperative Children’s Book Center
