Editorial Reviews

"This tender celebration of babies features gentle rhymes and warm, understated illustrations...The art has the look of cut paper, with distinct lines and pleasingly curved shapes...Eschewing the overt cuteness often seen in board books, the artist captures the toddler’s joy in subtle, but tangible images...The family feels real and specific, and the message...will resonate with all readers."

— School Library Journal

"Both the language and artwork is sophisticated in this board book that welcomes a new child into the world and explains how important he or she is to their parents...There is a smoothness and softness to both the message and the rhythm of the text, to which little ones will respond..The collage-style art featuring an Asian family has a warm elegance that parents will enjoy and whimsical touches that will appeal to children."

Little You

Richard Van Camp, internationally renowned storyteller and bestselling author of the hugely successful Welcome Song for Baby: A Lullaby for Newborns, has partnered with award-winning illustrator Julie Flett to create a tender board book for babies and toddlers that celebrates the potential of every child. 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!

A simple board book that celebrates a baby and its family, this book uses pictures and short sentences to express the joy the baby brings to their lives. The images and words can be used to promote personal narratives connected to family relationships and the universal celebration of babies and families. Art lessons can explore the use of colour and positive and negative space.
