Based on Academy Award-winning Cree icon Buffy Sainte-Marie’s song of the same name, Still This Love Goes On is a stunning celebration of Indigenous experience. Breathtaking illustrations from celebrated Cree–Métis artist Julie Flett combine with Sainte-Marie’s vivid lyrics to craft a remarkable piece of art.

Destined to be read and sung for generations, this gem of a picture book is accompanied by:

Sheet music so that readers can play along
A note from Sainte-Marie about her much-admired song

Sat beside a beaver dam and watched the winter grow
Ice was hard with little tracks appearing in the snow
Fog is in the valley now and all the geese are gone
Cross the moon I saw them go and
Still this love goes on and on
Still this love goes on.

Ages 3 to 7

"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.” —Horn Book STARRED REVIEW

“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
