Illustrated by Indigenous artist, Delreé Dumont, This Land Is a Lullaby (Orca $21.95) is a soothing lullaby that celebrates the sounds and beauty of the Prairies and Plains on a stormy summer night. From the gentle hum of dragonflies to the rhythmic drumming of thunder, the lullaby captures the essence of the land’s natural symphony. The book showcases captivating, colorful pointillism artwork of all the animals that roam around the Prairies and the Plains and its beautiful, vast landscapes, thus honoring the spiritual bond between Indigenous children, ancestors, and their Traditional Territories. Dumont also creates smudge fans, dreamcatchers and pine needle baskets, and she is a traditional powwow dancer. She lives near Revelstoke, British Columbia. 9781459836099
