Danielle Daniel is a Métis author and illustrator. She writes and paints in Sudbury, Ontario.

Once in a Blue Moon
Format: Hardcover
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian;
Grade Levels: Kindergarten; 1; 2;

Inspired by the expression “once in a blue moon,” Danielle Daniel has created a book of short poems, each one describing a rare or special experience that turns an ordinary day into a memorable one. She describes the thrill of seeing a double rainbow, the Northern Lights or a shooting star as well as quieter pleasures such as spotting a turtle basking in the sun or a family of ducks waddling across the road.

In simple words and delightful naïve images, Once in a Blue Moon celebrates the magical moments that can be found in the beauty and wonders of nature.

With the same simple yet sophisticated design as Danielle’s award-winning picture book Sometimes I Feel Like a Fox, this book is a very accessible and inviting introduction to poetry for young readers.

Parfois je suis un renard
rusé et astucieux.
J'observe mon entourage.
Puis, en un clin d'œil, je disparais.


Dans cette introduction enjouée aux animaux totémiques de la tradition anishinaabée, douze enfants s'identifient à différentes créatures comme un renard, un chevreuil, un castor ou un orignal. Les illustrations douces et colorées représentent des enfants portant des masques d'animaux et sont accompagnées de courts textes poétiques.

Sometimes I Feel Like a Fox
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian; First Nations; Anishinaabeg;
Grade Levels: Kindergarten; 1; 2;

In this introduction to the Anishinaabe tradition of totem animals, young children explain why they identify with different creatures such as a deer, beaver or moose. Delightful illustrations show the children wearing masks representing their chosen animal, while the few lines of text on each page work as a series of simple poems throughout the book.

In a brief author’s note, Danielle Daniel explains the importance of totem animals in Anishinaabe culture and how they can also act as animal guides for young children seeking to understand themselves and others.
