ARTIST, ACTIVIST & MUSIC LEGEND BUFFY SAINTE-MARIE LAUNCHES FIRST CHILDREN’S BOOK

Like much of Sainte-Marie’s powerful work, her children’s book shares an inspiring message of love and support for some of society’s most vulnerable

Vancouver, BC— Buffy Sainte-Marie, the internationally-celebrated singer-songwriter, performer, and activist, whose long list of accolades include an Academy Award, Golden Globe, Polaris Music Prize, multiple JUNO Awards, and the Order of Canada, will launch her debut children’s picture book, which celebrates animal rescue and pet adoption, on May 12, 2020. The book shares lyrics from a new song that Sainte-Marie will release to coincide with the book’s publication.

Hey Little Rockabye: A Lullaby for Pet Adoption, published by Greystone Kids and illustrated by Ben Hodson, is a touching picture book for kids ages 3-7 and is based on a song that Sainte-Marie created to welcome her rescue animals home when they first arrived from the shelter. “No matter what kind of animal your little rockabye pet is,” says Sainte-Marie, “I hope my song will make you feel loving and cozy together and fill you both with special joy.”
