    An ode to a parent's love for their kids.

    An absolutely charming book that can be read to babies and toddlers about love parents have for children. It's also important to note that it gives voice to Indigenous cultures, which is very important since their voices are almost completely unheard in children's literature. The art is also quite nice. A good choice for the upcoming holiday season if you know of anyone with babies!

    diverse picture book (a board book for parents welcoming a new baby; families; parental love for their child)* Prominently features diverse characters: beautiful illustrations depict medium-dark skinned families with straight black hair (could be identified as asian or First Nations or possibly Latinx). There are some spreads with just mom and baby, and other spreads with two parents--usually one with long hair that presents as female and one with short hair that could be interpreted as male or female, or somewhere else along the gender spectrum.* this would not be my first choice for storytime, since the story is so quiet, but it could work for a baby storytime with pre-walkers. It's a more likely choice for a gift for two parents who are welcoming a new baby.

    A wonderful ode to new baby and family.

    Board books can serve many purposes. Some are for chewing. Some are for learning concepts. Some are for fun. Some are apparently for making librarians cry at their desks on a Friday morning. The newest board book by Richard Van Camp and illustrated by Julie Flett is the latter. Its beautiful illustrations and text share just how happy parents are to have their children in their lives. Van Camp writes about how much babies and children are loved by their parents. Flett's illustrations show a small First Nations family with love and beauty. One spread, where the family is on a walk, shows a flock of birds flying and it is gorgeous. It shows a huge sky and small people, which is unusual for board books, but works to show how big and wonderful the world is.This is a great choice for a new baby gift. It is also a wonderful cuddly time book, perhaps for bedtime.-dz

    Julie Flett's illustrations are as gorgeous as usual. Van Camp's text speaks to the special magic that a new baby brings. As much as I love this book, and I do, I'm not sure what age group this would be for. I can see parents reading it to their preschoolers, but I'm not sure this would have a place for K to grade 3 readers. As a possible choice for the chocolate lily award, I think it's too young.

    This little board book is a parent’s song to a child containing message every child should hear; you are wanted, you are loved, you are our miracle. Each page has sparse illustrations of Native American children and families but universally appealing to all. A great gift to new parents. Reviewer 11

    This text makes me really think. I'm not sure if I like it or not which is really interesting! I read it multiple times and am still not sure about it well. There are extra levels within the text. This is a poem to welcome a baby.

    In poetic text, parents welcome a child to the world. Gouache illustrations with digital collage features a cast of First Nations characters.Highly recommended for new parents, especially as a gift, and for reading to baby.

    What a beautiful book! This would make a wonderful gift for someone expecting a baby or for new parents. Kudos Richard for such a wonderful story! Kudos to Julie Flett, the Illustrator, for such beautiful pictures!

    Not rhyming, which is why I'm surprised I enjoyed it so much. A little less sugar-sweet than usual take on being glad your baby is yours.

    Beautiful story and illustrations; Great for snuggling baby; Representation of a modern native family

    Eh, it was a little mystical for my taste, but the illustrations were simple, engaging, and reasonably understable for very young minds.

    This beautiful book reads like a song. The illustrations fill your mind with joy. I read this every night to my little one and we enjoy celebrating the life of welcoming him to our family!

    This was weird to me... maybe I just don't get the "deep meaning" writing

    This is a gentle lullaby story to be shared with the young and old. The pictures are poetic as well.

    A tender, lovely board book. The illustrations were warm, and the text was heartwarming and sincere, not at all treacly.
