The Song Within My Heart

by David Bouchard (Author), Allen Sapp (Illustrator)

Renowned Cree painter Allen Sapp's inspired and stunning artwork beautifully complements this sweet story of a young First Nations boy preparing for his first pow-wow. The young boy's Nokum—his beloved grandmother—guides him through the exciting day and watches over him as events unfold. David Bouchard's rhythmic and informative text is based on remembrances from Allen Sapp's childhood.

Winner of the Governor General's Literacy Award, The Song Within My Heart is a beautifully crafted picture book that reflects the wonders of life on a reserve, the importance of the pow-wow, and ultimately, the love between grandmother and grandson.
