A quiet loveliness, sense of gratitude, andyeshappiness emanate from this tender celebration of simple pleasures, which features a cast of First Nations children and adults; Smith dedicates the book, in part, to the former Indian Residential School students and their families. Short, first-person phrases (My heart fills with happiness when... I see the face of someone I love) revel in both solitary and familial activities, building to a direct address to readers: What fills your heart with happiness? Fletts (Little You) crisp-edged paintings blend universal and culturally specific experiencesthree children cluster around the oven as bannock bakes, while another boy spots a frog as he walks barefoot through the grass. Up to age 5. (Feb.)
