In A Day with Yayah, Nicola I. Campbell’s words and Julie Flett’s illustrations combine to take us along on an outing with Yayah and some of her family and friends as they gather plants, herbs, and mushrooms.  As they spend the day together, Yayah passes on to the children her knowledge of not only plants and their uses, but also their language.


This beautiful picture book celebrates time spent with family and friends, learning together about their traditions and language as well as the beauty and gifts of nature.
