★ "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. Both collaborators are of aboriginal Canadian descent, and the book will have particular appeal for families looking for nonwhite representations of tender family moments. But families of every size, shape, and background can appreciate sentiments like, 'You are life and breath adored/ You are us and so much more/ Little ember with growing light/ Feel our love as we hold you tight.'" -Publishers Weekly, starred review
"[Has] a quiet lyricism and poetic flair...Thunder, star, breath and ember provide images for the parents' love of this small baby—small in body but great in wonder. The clean lines and subtle colour contrasts in Flett’s illustrations are an apt complement to Van Camp's evocation of love, festivity and natural wonder." -The Toronto Star
