The Orphan and the Polar Bear
Artists:
Eva Widermann
Format: Hardcover
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian; Inuit;

In the world of Inuit traditional stories, animals and humans are not such different creatures. Animals can speak to, understand, and form relationships with humans.

In The Orphan and the Polar Bear an orphaned boy who is abandoned on the sea ice by a group of cruel hunters is discovered and adopted by a polar bear elder. While living in the polar bear's village, the orphan learns many lessons about survival, but most importantly, he learns something about himself and his own place in the world.

This book-retold for contemporary audiences by Inuit elder Sakiasi Qaunaq and illustrated by internationally renowned artist Eva Widermann--makes this beautiful traditional tale widely accessible for the first time.

Educator Information

On the Shoulder of a Giant
Authors:
Neil Christopher
Artists:
Jim Nelson
Format: Hardcover
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian; Inuit;
Grade Levels: 2;

This pan-Arctic Inuit legend, which tells the story of a friendly giant, is lightheartedly retold, featuring sweeping illustrations.

Inukpak was big, even for a giant. He loved to walk across the tundra, striding over the widest rivers and wading through the deepest lakes. He could walk across the Arctic in just a few days.

But being so big, and travelling so far, Inukpak was often alone. Until one day when he came across a little hunter on the tundra. Thinking that the hunter was a little boy alone on the land, Inukpak decided to adopt him. And so, from the shoulder of one of the biggest giants to ever roam the Arctic, this hunter experiences the world from Inukpak's perspective.

From the Mountains to the Sea: We Are a Community
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian;
Grade Levels: 2;

Each book in the series, From the Mountains to the Sea, supports the new BC Aboriginal Learning Standards in both Science and Social Studies.

Click link to download a Grade 2 five week planning guide: Grade 2 FREE Download for We Are a Community

Back of book introduction:

From the Mountains to the Sea: We Are a Community is a Grade 2 resource which covers all of your Aboriginal Learning Standards in both science and social studies within the new BC curriculum.

This book is about a river. Most rivers start high up in the mountains. As the water comes downhill, it makes little pathways in the rocks and gravel. As the pathways get bigger, they join to make streams. When several streams join, they make a river. Some rivers have waterfalls and deep pools. In some places, fast moving water tumbles over rocks forming rapids. When a river leaves the mountain for flatter ground it starts to slow down. Eventually, a river ends when it flows into the sea. Where the fresh water and the salt water meet is an estuary. Have you ever been to an estuary?

The area in and around an estuary 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. Have you ever eaten salmon?

People have paid attention to the life cycle of salmon for thousands of years. We have learned that sometimes we can help salmon survive by building a salmon hatchery along a river. Some hatcheries are huge while others are quite small. Have you ever visited a salmon hatchery?

There are many sizes of rivers in the world. Some are wide. Some are narrow. Some are deep. Some are shallow.
Do you live near a river?
What plants and animals have you seen there?

Des Montagnes à la mer: Nous Sommes une communaute
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian;
Grade Levels: 2;

Ce livre est au sujet d’une rivière. La plupart des rivières débutent haut dans les montagnes. L’eau descend la pente et crée de petites voies dans les roches et cailloux. Quand les voies grandissent, elles font les ruisseaux. Lorsque plusieurs ruisseaux se rejoignent ils deviennent une rivière. Quelques rivières ont des chutes d’eau et des bassins d’eau profonde. Dans quelques endroits l’eau dépasse les roches rapidement pour former des rapides. Quand une rivière quitte la montagne et la terre commence à s’aplatir, l’eau ralentit. Finalement une rivière termine quand elle déverse dans un bassin océanique. Est-ce que tu as déjà visité un estuaire ?

Le rivage autour d’un estuaire est un bon habitat pour les plantes, les animaux et les gens pour vivre parce que nous pouvons tous trouver de l’eau et de la nourriture là. Le saumon est une nourriture importante pour beaucoup d’entre nous. Est-ce que tu as déjà mangé du saumon ?
Les gens ont prêté attention au cycle de vie du saumon pendant des milliers d’années. Nous avons appris que parfois nous pouvons aider les saumons à survivre en construisant une écloserie à côté de la rivière. Quelques écloseries sont grandes tandis que d’autres sont assez petites. As-tu déjà visité une écloserie ?
Il y a beaucoup de grandeurs de rivières dans le monde. Certaines sont larges. Certains sont étroites. Certaines sont profondes. Certaines sont peu profondes.

Est-ce que tu habites près d’une rivière ?
Quelles plantes et animaux est-ce que tu as vus là?

A Man Called Raven
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian; First Nations; Dene; Tlicho (Dogrib);
Grade Levels: 2; 3; 4;

When Chris and Toby Greyeyes find a raven in the garage, they try to trap it and hurt it with hockey sticks. To them, ravens are just a nuisance because they spread garbage all over the street. Or so they think—until a mysterious man who smells like pine needles enters their lives and teaches them his story of the raven. 

In this intriguing book, George Littlechild, internationally acclaimed artist and author of the Jane Addams Award-winning book This Land Is My Land, returns to collaborate with Richard Van Camp, an exciting voice in Native American literature. 

Set in the Northwest Territories of Canada, Van Camp's contemporary story draws from the animal legends and folklore told to him by his Dogrib elders. Littlechild's bold use of color and perspective captures the sense of mystery and magic surrounding the strange raven man who teaches the boys the meaning of respect for nature. 

Blending past with present, the magical with the real, A Man Called Raven is both a tribute to the wisdom of the raven and a positive reminder that we can all learn from nature.

With a new cover and newly designed interiors, Wolf Island is sure to be a howl! It''s a vivid, full colour portrait of nature, and the fragile balance of a natural ecosystem.

A family of wolves leave their island environment. Although, at first, their absence is unnoticed, nature''s delicately balanced ecosystem comes undone over a period of months, and the mice, rabbits, squirrels, and even owls fight for survival. Finally, the accidental return of the wolf family to their home restores the island habitat to health.

Caribou Song
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian; First Nations; Cree (Nehiyawak);
Grade Levels: 2; 3; 4;

Joe and Cody are young Cree brothers who follow the caribou all year long, tucked into their dog sled with their Mama and Papa. To entice the wandering herds, Joe plays the Kitoochigan, his accordion, and Cody dances, whirling like a young caribou. They are so busy playing and dancing, they don't hear the rumble of the caribou. Bursting from the forest, ten thousand animals fill the meadow like a lake. Joe is engulfed; he can barely see Cody a few yards away, perched like a doll on the caribou moss. Their parents seem to have disappeared.

And yet what should be a moment of terror turns into something mystical and magical, as the boys open their arms and their hearts to embrace the caribou spirit.

A tale that is perfectly simple and satisfying, yet infused with layers of wonder that will open both children's and adults' minds to the intriguing possibilities of independence, separation and the strength of the spirit, Caribou Song is the first in a three-book series about Joe and Cody.

Reviews
"Caribou Song is a story of family, tradition, spirit, and livelihood. Music weaves the elements together, making them soar just as Highway's words and Rombough's art beautifully and evocatively express a way of life that has slipped (or is slipping) away. Rombough's illustrations in Caribou Song are strongly influenced by the Woodland (or Anishinaabe) School, with its emphasis on dark outlines, vivid colours, and visionary imagery. Founding member Norval Morrisseau's iconic style lives on in Rombough's work, but where they diverge is in the almost effervescent quality of Rombough's paintings. Bubbling with circular imagery and spots of amethyst, sapphire and topaz, framed in black and laid over flat washes of colour, each scene is like a pane of stained glass; a mix of storytelling and spirituality that is simply magnificent." — 32pages.ca

"Tomson Highway's mastery creates an exciting, action-packed plot. Elements of suspense simultaneously entertain beauty, magic, and whimsy. Highway artfully crafts his scenes with the vivid river imagery capturing the full drama of the caribou's presence - the sound of their hooves beating on the earth like the pounding of drums. Caribou Song is an experience for the senses. — CM Magazine

From the heartbreaking Mi’kmaq story of Minnow, a mermaid in the Atlantic who must choose between two worlds to that of Water Lily and her five brothers, told by the Coos in British Columbia, creatures that inhabit fantastic realms appear in many First Nation stories. C. J. Taylor draws from those stories and from her own Mohawk heritage in this collection of haunting tales about some of the powerful spirits who touch the lives of human folk. The spirits of heaven and earth from the Ute help bring an understanding of the stars in the sky. The Cree story, “Souls in the Fog,” presents the battle between the good and the evil-minded. The Ojibwa “Fairy Village” is a unique and touching love story. Illustrated with her own powerful oil paintings, this is a collection to read and an excellent story-teller’s resource.

I Want to be in The Show

Format: Paperback

Grade Levels: 2; 3; 4;

Young Tristan dreams of playing in the NHL,"The Show", and he won't let his crippled foot stop him. This is an encouraging story of determination and friendship, set against the annual Limestone Classic hockey tournament in Kingston, Ont.

Reviews
"Tristan was born to a loving and supportive family in Kingston,  Ontario. A slight physical anomaly caused one of Tristan's feet to turn inward, requiring him to wear a brace. From an early age, Tristan loved playing hockey with his friends and, like many children, dreamed of playing in the NHL. He worked very hard, day and  night, night an day until he finally made it to "The Show." As an adult, Tristan returns to Kingston to return the goodwill and generosity that was given to him. This is a heartwarming,  contemporary story of a First Nations family. The black and white illustrations do a fine job of bringing the story to life, though they have a bit too much shading which makes the book visually a bit dark. Even so, this is likely to be a favorite with young readers." - Oyate

But long ago when dreams were more real than they are today; there was a young boy who lived by the sea. He was called Wood Duck. His people had always lived beside the ocean. Its salty water flavoured their days. Its currents flowed through their nights. The power of the sea ran very strongly in Wood Duck. In his dreams, fish swam and sea birds flew.

Peace Walker: The Legend of Hiawatha and Tekanawita
Format: Hardcover
Grade Levels: 2; 3; 4;

The Iroquois Confederacy was one of the world’s great democra­cies, serving as a model that inspired the founders of both the United States and Canada. C. J. Taylor has drawn on her Mohawk heritage and versions of the story she has gathered from elders to tell the story of the Confederacy of Five Nations (which became six after European contact) and of the heroic peace walker, Hiawatha, in powerful prose and dramatic art.

Peace Walker is the story of how peace and unity emerged from a time of chaos when the nations suffered under the brutality of Chief Atotahara – a man so evil that he drank potions from the skull of a small child.

Hiawatha’s story has been told in many versions, but none have the ring of authenticity and passion of C. J. Taylor’s remarkable book.

Tiktala looked out at the black churning waters. She dreaded the sea, but she was more afraid of being left alone. She closed her eyes and heaved forward. "I am Tiktala," she cried, as she entered the ocean.Tiktala looked down at what should have been her mittens and saw silver-grey fur, black claws-flippers. She tried to get away, but the flippers-her flippers-scratched and scrambled on the rock. Tiktala was a harp seal."Spirit!" her cry rang out. "Change me back!" But no spirit answered.

How We Saw the World: Nine Native Stories of the Way Things Began
Format: Paperback
Grade Levels: 2; 3; 4;

All peoples have their own stories of how the Earth was created, what separated the land from the seas, and how the many animals, fish, and other creatures came to have their particular characteristics. The native tribes of North America are no different: they too have stories about the “way things began.” A fascinating collection of tales that explain the origins of tornadoes, forest fires, butterflies, horses, Niagara Falls, why dogs are our best friends, and even a very funny story of why owls and rabbits look the way they do.

Reviews
“Taylor tells the tale with straightforward ease: her paintings, exquisitely evocative of their primeval setting.” –Kirkus Reviews

One snowy owl's first year and its struggle to survive. Fed by his parents,Ookpik, which means "snowy owl" in the Inuit language, grows quickly in the short Arctic summer. By autumn he has learned to hunt on his own, but prey is scarce on the tundra that year. The owl's instincts tell him that he must leave this land or starve. Ookpik flies south, over the great forests of Canada, and finally lands in the United States, always searching for food and a winter hunting ground. With vivid watercolor illustrations, Bruce Hiscock depicts the changing landscape, from the treeless Arctic of Baffin Island to the dairy country of eastern New York. There, Ookpik settles for the winter, much to the delight of bird watchers. An author's note offers additional details on the life of the snowy owl.

Manny's Memories

Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian; Métis;
Grade Levels: 2; 3; 4;

Manny's Memories, by Author Ken Caron with his daughter Angela Caron, introduces us to the Métis community of Round Prairie, Saskatchewan through the eyes of a young boy growing up in the 1940s. Manny shares his boyhood memories of the once vibrant community not too far from Saskatoon's city limits. Though rural life at the time called for hard work, self-sufficiency, and generosity, there was always time to have fun and to enjoy being a young Métis boy. Artist Donna Lee Dumont's visual expression of Manny's Memories helps us see the world as Ken, called "Manny" in his youth, remembers it. Norman Fleury's accompanying Michif translation and narration returns to the language which Manny often hears as a boy. Manny's Memories leaves us with a rare and satisfying glimpse of life not so long ago.

Grade Levels: 2; 3; 4;

"She felt like the butterflies she once danced with by her favourite lake, freed from her cocoon."
Piujuq is a kind young woman who loves to take long walks on the tundra and dance by her favourite lake surrounded by butterflies. But one day, she encounters a stranger on her walk. When this person asks a favour of Piujuq, she happily obliges, and that kindness leaves Piujuq stuck in the body of a caterpillar. Alone, and thinking that no one could ever love her because of how she looks, Piujuq does not return to her camp. Instead, she lives a lonely life on the tundra as a caterpillar. Until one day when another stranger appears . . . Based on a beautiful Inuit traditional story, this tale of inner beauty, kindness, and magic is a perfect addition to any young reader's bookshelf.
