★ "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.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

Richard Van Camp, internationally renowned storyteller and bestselling author of Welcome Song for Baby and We Sang You Home, has partnered with award-winning illustrator Julie Flett to create a tender picture 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!

Orca Book Publishers is proud to offer this picture book as a dual-language (English and Anishinaabemowin) edition.

“A simple yet beautiful ode to a newborn child and the parents who love them. With gentle multi-textured illustrations, the story, suited for babies and toddlers alike, explores the potential of every child as they are guided by loving caregivers…A first purchase for collections in need of more ­diverse language offerings.”
