Mouse Celebrates the Winter Solstice - ON SALE
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian; First Nations; Kwakwaka'wakw;

It is winter. The land lies still, quiet and stark beneath a blanket of snow. The tiny footprints of a mouse can be seen in the light of the moon.

"Wrapped in the quiet, and there in the bleak, there stood a wise mouse, preparing to speak."

The words that mouse chose were from many years past. She spoke them into the cold night air. So begins the enchanting story of a very special Winter Solstice celebration.

Kwakwaka’wakw author Terri Mack and Tsimshian artist Bill Helin have collaborated to bring us this story of strength, friendship and celebration. The lyrical text and engaging illustrations will appeal to readers of all ages.

Author's note:
Gila'kasla!
I spent a year writing and rewriting this poem to be sure to convey the message clearly to my audience. It was important to me that the poem reflect the importance of us all joining together to find the sacredness in celebration, the joy of belonging within a greater community and the voice of determination inside of each of us. Inspired by Indigenous Peoples rising, healing and joining together I hope that this poem inspires our youth to be strong and determined in all their future goals.
~Terri Mack

A fun and lyrical celebration of the caribou.

A is for Adventure
Authors:
Jan Sebastian LaPierre
Artists:
Christopher Hoyt
Format: Paperback

A for Adventure was written to empower children (in a fun way) to move, to get physical, to hike, bike and explore the natural world. The high energy A-Z rhyming verse format takes children through a wide range of activities from biking, canoeing and dancing to hiking, jumping, kayaking, riding and surfing – to ziplining! In addition to these activities are wider adventure concepts eg “E is for Exploring, you need not go far/because you’ll be exploring wherever you are…” and “Q is for quest, to bring out your best/often adventure can be quite a test…” (All verses are six line stanzas).

The main themes centre around three tenants: curiosity, creativity and resiliency which the authors believe are inherent in engaging in adventurous play. The book encourages discussion of topics that include facing your fears, protecting the planet and self-confidence to name a few.

The authors have partnered with Parks Canada to travel across Canada promoting parks facilities and family activities. They will also be doing school readings and speaking engagements. CBC will be lending support with local and regional publicity/media. Other partners include MEC, Helly Hansen and Chevy Canada. Social media on-going.

A West Coast Summer
Authors:
Caroline Woodward
Artists:
Carol Evans
Format: Hardcover

To the sea, to the sea,

who or what waits here for me?

Pairing two dozen of Carol Evans’s wonderful watercolours with a lilting rhyming story by Caroline Woodward, A West Coast Summer tells of a timeless, idyllic season where “Sea salt in the air floats everywhere / and cedars smell so sweet beside the shore.” Children race bikes along sand flats, search under logs and in tide pools for tiny creatures, jig at the dock for herring, dance at a totem raising ceremony, pick berries, make memories and leave footprints in the sand.

Evans’s illustrations capture the jubilation of children exploring the seashore, inspiring young readers to take their own journey to the sea to discover who or what waits for them in the Pacific Northwest—and learn that the best memories are those shared with family and friends.

Readers of all ages will enjoy this charming collaboration, sure to become a West Coast children’s classic.

Reviews
"A West Coast Summer is simply magical! You’ll find yourself transported into the wonder of a perfect day by the ocean. A must-have for anyone who loves to play!"— Robert Budd, co-author of the Northwest Coast Legends and First West Coast Books series

"I have long admired Carol Evans’s art. What a treat to see her paintings in her first book for children. The light, the ripples of water, the joy! Evans’s paintings vibrate with the magic of rocks and tide pools as seen from a child’s point of view. Accompanied by Caroline Woodward’s lyrical text, this book feels like author and illustrator take the reader by the hand for a wondrous walk in the sunshine. A must-read, not just for West Coasters but for all who want to experience the beauty of wild Pacific shores." — Margriet Ruurs, author of Stepping Stones: A Refugee Family’s Journey
