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.

Little You

Th is is a board book with short poetic text and brightly coloured, simple illustrations showing a mother, father and toddler. It celebrates the individuality of children and the joy they bring to families. Th e Japanese-style pictures lend a multicultural feel.

Useful in school libraries that support Roots of Empathy and preschool programs, it may also be used as a pattern book and a basis for discussion of families and new babies.

Van Camp is an internationally renowned storyteller and author of many books. A member of the Dogrib (Tlicho) Nation from Fort Smith, NWT, he has taught creative writing at UBC and Emily Carr Institute and was Writer in Residence at the University of Alberta.

Flett is a Métis and Cree artist and illustrator who has been nominated for several awards for her picture books.
