A Night at Hideaway Cove (Hardcover)
Authors:
Artists:
Format: Hardcover
Grade Levels: Kindergarten; 1; 2; 3;

Come with us, on a mid-August night, to a secluded beach on the Pacific Northwest Coast. There we will meet many creatures that make Hideaway Cove their home. From the black bear to the tiniest beach hopper, we will catch a glimpse of their night-time activities. We will also learn how the moon affects the tides, and explore the intertidal zones. 

A Night at Hideaway Cove is a sequel to Hideaway Cove, another exploration of the Pacific Northwest Coast during the daytime. Written by Brenda Boreham, and illustrated by Laura Timmermans, both books share with us the many interconnections within a healthy marine ecosystem.
 
Reviews
"There are many thoughtful and charming details in both the text and illustrations, such as the moon’s movement across the sky in Laura’s illustrations and the subtle introduction of numbers as the narrative progresses. The moon is a large focus of the story—children will learn about how it affects the tides and what this means for beach creatures like raccoons, who are able to forage for an easy meal amongst the heaps of seaweed left along the shoreline as the tide goes out. Four back pages deliver information about the moon, intertidal zones and seashore creatures, making this book useful for ecosystem units and lessons on astronomy. A final page with suggestions on how to respect and protect seashore animals and habitats when exploring coastal areas invites discussions about environmental awareness. A Night at Hideaway Cove is sure to both delight and inform young readers." - Canadian Teacher Magazine, 2019 Winter Issue

Join us on a mid August day, on the wild and rocky shores of the Pacific Northwest Coast. From the orca to the tiniest barnacle, enjoy a colourful glimpse into the lives of the many creatures that live in, and around, Hideaway Cove.

Brenda Boreham and Laura Timmermans share with us, through words and illustrations, the many interconnections within a healthy marine eco-system.

Reviews
"Hideaway Cove is a must-have when teaching a seashore ecosystem unit. This book provides opportunities for students to share their connections with the seashore while they learn more about the interactions within the marine ecosystem. Students could select an animal that they would like to research, leading to a project-based activity. Creating a timeline of the August day would be a great learning opportunity that would integrate mathematics, science, writing and art. Vocabulary and imagery lessons could be a focus with Hideaway Cove as well. If possible, taking students to the beach would provide students the opportunity to experience the book’s theme first hand." - Cindy Haack, Canadian Teacher Magazine 

"Hideaway Cove is a delightful, information-packed picture book that takes children through a day in the life of a west coast cove. Here, humans are noticeably absent and the diverse plants and animals tell a wonderful tale. Brenda Boreham’s text is lyrical and rich in detail. Educators and parents alike will appreciate the endnotes with further details about flora and fauna, as well as the illustrated map locating the habitats of the featured plants and animals.... Although Hideaway Cove appears to be intended for the educational market, it is beautifully written and would be suitable for family bookshelves." - Sheryl McFarlane, Hakai Magazine

Strong Body & Mind Yoga Cards
Size: 15 cm W X 29 cm H
Text Content Territories: Indigenous;

25 Double-sided Interconnecting Cards, 6" x 9"

The word Yoga comes from Sanskrit and means to unite, to bring together, to connect.The Strong Body & Mind Yoga Cards connect the ancient practice of yoga with Indigenous culture. These cards celebrate connection as they invite all of us to honour our connection to each other, to our animal friends, to nature and spirit and to this amazing planet we all share. - Kathy Beliveau

The Yoga Practice:
Choose an individual card, or one of each colour to create a sequence, or several cards at once for a longer yoga practice. A practice with children may include making sounds. Invite the children to hoot like an owl or caw like a raven or growl like a bear!

The cards are colour coded into four aspects of a yoga practice:
4 Green Opening Breath cards
8 Yellow Warm-up Pose cards
8 Purple Active Pose cards
4 Blue Closing Pose cards
~Kathy Beliveau

The Reflective Practice:
The reflective practice follows the Seven Sacred Teachings and incorporates Indigenous values. Our intention is to invite you to use one or more of these reflections to deepen your yoga experience either before, during, or after your practice. Choose a single card to respond to by yourself, with a friend, in a sharing circle or as a guide for journal writing.

The cards are colour coded into four aspects of a reflective practice:
8 Yellow Respect cards
Focus on respect and love to the world around us
4 Green Witness cards
Focus on humility, courage and interconnectedness
4 Blue Gratitude cards
Focus on the wisdom that surrounds us
8 Purple Connected cards
Focus on truth and honesty in all living beings
