Buffy Sainte-Marie is excited to announce the upcoming release of her very first illustrated children’s book, titled Hey Little Rockabye – A Lullaby for Pet Adoption, available on Tuesday, May 12, 2020 via Greystone Books.

This tender and moving picture book tells the story of a puppy who is looking for someone to love him. Will the girl who rescues him convince her parents to let her keep the little dog? Buffy Sainte-Marie advocates “putting the songs to work” and, like her other lyrics, Hey Little Rockabye conveys an important message about finding love and acceptance. Brought to life in charming illustrations by award-winning illustrator Ben Hodson, Hey Little Rockabye shares a not-yet-released song with the world for the first time.

Hey Little Rockabye will be accompanied by the release of a recorded song by Buffy Sainte-Marie, so readers can sing along to the words in the book. The song will be available via digital music platforms Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, and others on May 12.
