This is a lovely little board book. I first encountered Van Camp's work in Little You , another simple picture book for toddlers. May We Have Enough to Share combines sweet sentiments of gratitude and love with beautiful photographs from tea&bannock , a collective blog of indigenous women photographers.

The text is simple yet profound, and little ones will probably love looking at the photos of babies, children, and families (some of them are really lovely). This would be a nice addition to

Many thanks to Netgalley for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an unbiased opinion.

This is a beautiful book that incorporates sayings about gratitude and includes beautiful photographs of people to go along with the sayings. The simple messages in the book are meant to remind us all to be thankful for what we have within us that can be easily shared with others.

It is a book for children and what it has to say is simple but profound. These are words that we all need to hear every now

This is fine.

It's simple and brief and nothing blew me away -- except I loved the open-mouthed baby facing "May the success and joy we see inspired our own dreams and wishes."

I did really appreciate "Photographs provided by members of Tea & Bannock, a collective blog by Indigenous women photographers."

This is a beautiful board book incorporating sayings by Richard Van Camp about gratitude with photographs by a collective of indigenous women. So very dear, I read it four times before putting it down, each reading bringing something else to my attention.

May we all have enough to share, and may we share it!

Many thanks to NetGalley and Orca Book Publishers for allowing me to read an ARC of this charming board book in exchange for an unbiased opinion.

Gorgeous with amazing photographs by Indigenous women photographers, this book will make you tear up and want to cuddle a child tight! The poetic text asks for all the things people want to share, from food to love.

This would make a wonderful book to read for bedtime, or if you want to show thankfulness and gratitude that many of the things mentioned in the book are free. This book would also make an excellent gift to celebrate adding a child to a family.

Simply beautiful.

The simple messages in this book remind us all to be thankful for the things in life that we have within us that can be easily shared with everyone around us. A mini book about life and love and family.

This board book is incredibly sweet. The pictures will melt your heart, and the words are the kind we would all do to remember.

Definitely recommended!
