Richard Van Camp, internationally renowned storyteller and bestselling author of the hugely successful Welcome Song for Baby: A Lullaby for Newborns, has partnered with talented illustrator Julie Flett to create a tender board 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!

(synopsis from Goodreads)

The illustrations looked familiar as I started reading this, and I recognized the name... from a book I read earlier this week called My Heart Fills with Happiness. Little You is in the same vein. It's a very simple picture book, with a gentle rhyming text that would be lovely read aloud. I liked the pictures just as much as the ones in My Heart Fills with Happiness; there's something about their minimalist style that's really charming.

This seems like the perfect bedtime read for little ones. I highly recommend it!
