Mi corazón se llena de alegría

Un libro en cartoné que celebra la alegría, invitando a los niños a pensar en las pequeñas cosas de la vida que les hacen sentir alegres.

La luz del sol en la cara. El aroma de bannock caliente horneándose. Agarranr la mano de alguien querido. ¿Qué llena tu corazón de alegría? Este hermoso libro en cartoné, con ilustraciones de la artista de renombre Julie Flett, sirve como recordatorio tanto para pequeños como adultos a pensar en y apreciar los momentos de la vida que nos llenan de alegría.
