From the Mountains to the Sea: We Live Here
Format:Paperback
, 2015
  • Each book in the series, From the Mountains to the Sea, supports the new BC Aboriginal Learning Standards in both Science and Social Studies.

    From the Mountains to the Sea: We Live Here is a Kindergarten resource which covers all of your Aboriginal Learning Standards in both science and social studies within the new BC curriculum.

    Back of book introduction:
    This book is about a river. Can you find a river on the front cover of this book? What do you know about rivers?

    Most rivers start high up in the mountains. As the water comes down the hill, it makes little pathways in the rocks and gravel. As the pathways get bigger, they join to make streams. Sometimes the streams join together to make a river. Where a river leaves the mountains the ground flattens out, and the river slows down. The river ends when it flows into the sea.

    The area in and around a river is a good place for plants, animals and people to live because we can all find food and water there. The salmon is an important food for many of us.

    Some of the plants and animals that you will find in this book are:
    Cedar trees live and grow all the way along a river, from the mountains to the sea.

    Salmon spend their adult lives out in the open sea. When it is time to lay their eggs, they swim back to their home streams. Their home streams are sometimes very close to the mountains.

    Bears walk long distances to find their food. They live from the mountains to the sea. In the fall they go to the rivers to fish for salmon.

    Eagles fly over large areas looking for food. They live from the mountains to the sea. In the fall, they go to the rivers to feast on salmon.

    Orcas live in the open sea. They swim long distances to hunt for food.
    Some orcas eat salmon.

From the Mountains to the Sea: We Share the Seasons
Format:Paperback
, 2015
  • Each book in the series, From the Mountains to the Sea, supports the new BC Aboriginal Learning Standards in both Science and Social Studies.

    Back of book introduction:

    From the Mountains to the Sea: We Share the Seasons is a Grade 1 resource which covers all of your Aboriginal Learning Standards in both science and social studies within the new BC curriculum.

    This book is about the changing seasons in and along a riverbank, from the mountains to the sea. You will see many plants and animals that live along a riverbank. They grow and change just as we do.

    A season is one of the four parts of the year: winter, spring, summer and fall. We all share and experience the changing of the seasons. Some changes we all make are small. Other changes are big. We all grow and change. What do you know about the seasons?

    Winter, up in the mountains can be cold. The days are short. Many animals sleep in their dens underneath the snow. Other animals are active all winter. Some birds and animals travel away to warmer places. Most plants rest during the winter too.

    Spring, along the banks of a mountain stream, is a time when the weather feels warmer. The days are longer. Sleeping animals wake up and come out of their dens. They are hungry and start looking for food. Birds and animals that went away for the winter come back. Plants start to grow again.

    Summer, along the banks of a river can sometimes be hot. The days are long. The young animals and birds are growing. They are learning how to find food and stay safe from danger. Plants are growing and spreading out their leaves and branches. Wild berries start to ripen and provide food for many of us.

    Fall, around a river estuary can be cool and windy. The days are shorter. Animals and birds start getting ready for the long winter ahead. Some fatten themselves up so that they can sleep through the winter. Others gather with their families to begin their long journey to warmer places. The salmon return from the sea and swim up their home streams to lay their eggs in the gravel. Trees, shrubs, and bushes begin to turn colour and then drop their leaves. Plants start to move into a time of rest.
    Which of the four seasons is your favourite? Why do you like it the best?

    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.”
