A is for Adventure
Format: Paperback
, 2015
  • A for Adventure was written to empower children (in a fun way) to move, to get physical, to hike, bike and explore the natural world. The high energy A-Z rhyming verse format takes children through a wide range of activities from biking, canoeing and dancing to hiking, jumping, kayaking, riding and surfing – to ziplining! In addition to these activities are wider adventure concepts eg “E is for Exploring, you need not go far/because you’ll be exploring wherever you are…” and “Q is for quest, to bring out your best/often adventure can be quite a test…” (All verses are six line stanzas).
    The main themes centre around three tenants: curiosity, creativity and resiliency which the authors believe are inherent in engaging in adventurous play. The book encourages discussion of topics that include facing your fears, protecting the planet and self confidence to name a few.
    The authors have partnered with Parks Canada to travel across Canada promoting parks facilities and family activities. They will also be doing school readings and speaking engagements. CBC will be lending support with local and regional publicity/media. Other partners include MEC, Helly Hansen and Chevy Canada. Social media on-going.
    The book is available in paperback editions with beautiful illustrations by Christopher Hoyt.

A is for Amphitrite
Author: Shirley Martin
Format: Paperback
, 2015
  • Shirley Martin is evolving as a writer and photographer. A longtime resident of Ucluelet B.C., she is inspired by the rugged west coast environment.

    Her self-published book A is for Amphitrite is an alphabet book for all ages, showcasing the spectacular beauty of Ucluelet’s Wild Pacific Trail.

    A Review by Laurie Carter, author of Emily Carr’s B.C.

    “At first glance the format and dedication of A is for Amphitrite: A Walk on Ucluelet’s Wild Pacific Trail suggest something for children, but this is one of those wonderful books that effortlessly cross the generation gap. While young readers may be most fascinated with “B” for banana slugs and “T” for tidal pools, adults are bound to be interested in “O” for Oyster Jim and “K” for krummholz. Everyone will stop to savour Shirley Martin’s captivating photographs. A is for Amphitrite is a wonderful invitation to explore the natural world of the Wild Pacific Trail and a memorable keepsake if you’ve already made the journey.”

Then a pod of orcas explodes out of the sea - so many, you can't begin to add them up. But wait. At the end of the day, you can count from ten all the way down again, as ten sailboats, nine fishboats, eight beach umbrellas - and on and on - gradually settle for the evening or pack up and drift away.A gentle and poetic counting book by the award-winning author of Waiting for the Whales and Jessie's Island, Sheryl McFarlane's A Pod of Orcas is just the right bedtime read for eager little counters. Artist Kirsti Wakelin makes her picture book debut with exquisite watercolor paintings that glow with dreamy light and warmth.Parents and educators will appreciate the simple, yet effective design.
