Buffalo
Author: Beverly Brodsky
Format: Paperback
, 2006
  • "A powerful tribute to a majestic animal!

    "The Buffalo was a way of life for the indians of the Great Plains. It provided food, fuel, and clothing - all the basic needs. The first Americans celebrated the buffalo's sacred spirit with ceremonies, prayers, and songs. The buffalo taught that all living things, including humans, are equal in the natural world. The American Indian is of the soil, whether it be the region of forests, plains, pueblos, or mesas. He fits into the landscape, for the hand that fashioned the continent also fashioned the man for his surroundings. He once grew as naturally as the wild sunflowers; he belongs just as the buffalo belonged"....- Oglala Sioux chief

    Beverly Brodsky's watercolors and oil paintings accompany tribal song-poems woven into a narrative history about the buffalo's essential and sacred role on the Plains. Her book is a powerful tribute to a majestic animal, tracing the history of the buffalo from the beginning of time to present day. Beverly Brodsky reveived a Caldecott Honour for her earlier work, the Golem. Her magnificent paintings and text in Buffalo have also reveived many awards, including:ASPCA Henry R. Bergh Children's Book Honor Winner, 2004Notable Social Studies Trade Books for Young People, 2004Best Children's Books of the Year (Outstanding Merit)--Bank Street College, 2004

Lasso the Wind: Aurelia's Verses and other Poems
Format: Hardcover
, 2013
  • Can you lasso the wind?

    Can you whip it a-gale?

    Can you make oceans bend

    To cradle each lost whale?

    Lasso the Wind is the first collection of children’s poetry by renowned poet and playwright George Elliott Clarke. By turns absurd, witty, playful, and profound, Clarke’s poems speak to the vivid wonder, the bright joys, and the secret pains of growing up in this world.

    With bold and contemporary illustrations by Susan Tooke, Lasso the Wind is a masterpiece.

Loon
Format: Hardcover
, 2011
  • The haunting call of a loon is quintessential summertime for many people. These majestically beautiful birds breed on northern lakes during the spring and summer, and when fall arrives, they migrate to open coastal waters. Young loons stay on the ocean for three or four years until they mature and their gray feathers molt, turning to the beautiful black-and-white patterned feathers by which they are known. At this point they return to an inland lake to find a mate and have their young.

    This gorgeously illustrated prose poem follows two baby chicks through this cycle. We witness their birth, and how they learn to swim, find food and avoid predators such as snapping turtles and big bass, and the possible danger of boaters. In the fall they imitate their parents as they learn to fly and are eventually large and strong enough to make their own migration to the coast.

    An afterword supplies other interesting facts about the common loon, which some scientists believe has inhabited lakes and oceans for millions of years. It describes these birds' amazing diving ability, their four different calls, and the different factors that threaten them, such as loss of habitat due to human proximity and environmental problems (acid rain, deadly toxins in lakes, oil spills and global warming), suggesting different ways that we might help to protect them. Also included are suggestions for further reading and endpapers featuring illustrations of many other animals shown throughout the book that can be found in the loon's habitat.

    Both the text and the illustrations have been carefully checked by an ornithologist for scientific accuracy.

    Susan Vande Griek's simple, poetic text has been beautifully illustrated by Karen Reczuch, who received high praise for her work in award-winning Salmon Creek, a similar picture book focusing on the life cycle of an intriguing animal.

Mingan My Village
Format: Paperback
, 2014
  • Illustrator Rogé visited a school in Mingan, an Innu village in northeastern Quebec. He spent a few days taking the time to photograph each child. Once he returned home to his studio, brush in hand, he revisited the eyes of these children and drew their portraits.

    MINGAN my village is a collected of fifteen faces, and fifteen poems written by young Innu. Given a platform to be heard, the children chose to transport readers far away from the difficulties and problems related to their realities to see the beauty that surrounds them in nature.

    First published in French as Mingan Mon Village in 2012, which won several awards and nominations, including:

    Winner, 2013 Prix des libraires du Québec jeunesse (5-11 years category)
    2013 Governor General’s Award, French Children’s Illustration finalist
    Finalist, Prix TD de Littérature Canadienne pour L’enfance et la Jeunesse 2013
