The sun on your face. The smell of warm bannock baking in the oven. Holding the hand of someone you love. What fills your heart with happiness? This beautiful Own Voices board book, with illustrations from celebrated artist Julie Flett, serves as a reminder for little ones and adults alike to reflect on and cherish the moments in life that bring us joy.
International speaker and award-winning author Monique Gray Smith wrote My Heart Fills with Happiness to support the wellness of Indigenous children and families, and to encourage young children to reflect on what makes them happy.
About the Foundry Family Children's Library: Curated by Heather, who came to our Foundry Family by way of iconic Minneapolis children's bookshop Wild Rumpus, the Foundry Family Children's Collection are the kinds of books that illuminate wonder, that tell deep human truths with gentle grace and good humor, and that move humans of all sizes with their simple, honest loveliness. We like to think of them as "new heirlooms", beautiful, timeless tales suitable for telling again and again (and again and again and again).
