Description

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.
La ponente internacional y premiada autora Monique Gray Smith escribió Mi corazón se llena de alegría para reforzar el bienestar de niños y familias indígenas y para incentivar que los niños pequeños reflexionen en las cosas que les hacen sentir alegría.
