Praise for We All Play written and illustrated by Julie Flett

"The Cree-Métis Flett pairs rhythmic alliterative verse about animals at play with repeating silhouettes of frolicking children to celebrate our interconnectedness."
-The New York Times

"Lively and beautifully illustrated."

"Cree-Métis artist Flett starts with quiet, elegant portraits of animals .In spare compositions, [she] aptly underlines [the kinship between animals and people] by showing animals and humans embracing play in similar ways."
-Publishers Weekly STARRED Review

"Everyone loves to play! Award-winning author/illustrator Flett shares the joyful antics of young animals as they romp in much the same way as human children. Simple text and bold, graphic illustrations celebrate our interconnection with the creatures who share our world."
-Kirkus STARRED Review

Praise for Birdsong written and illustrated by Julie Flett


"Flett's simple story explores the difficulties of moving but also shows young readers how new friends can sometimes ease them; that this friendship is an intergenerational one between fellow artists is an especially sweet touch Emotionally stunning."
-Kirkus STARRED Review

"Simple and profound, this tender story is a reminder that finding a new friend can make a new place feel like home. Highly recommended for purchase."
-School Library Journal STARRED Review

"Flett's subtle, sensitive story delicately traces filaments of growth and loss through intergenerational friendship, art making, and changing moons and seasons. Cree-Métis words (defined in a small glossary) add an intimate layer of identity to the child's lustrous narration, which shines against the spare beauty of rich illustrations by Flett (who is Cree-Métis)"
