Goose Girl
Artists:
Rhian Brynjolson
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Métis;

Many years ago, by a lake in Northern Canada, a young girl named Marie found a wordless understanding with a special goose that would change her life. Goose Girl is a gentle and moving story of love, faith and letting go.

Reviews
"The almost poetic text is written with a style consistent with an oral narrative. Together with Rhian Brynjolson's beautiful illustrations, the text enables one to liberate the imagination, freeing it to roam and explore the possibilities suggested by Goose Girl.

In Goose Girl, a young Métis girl, Marie, loves to walk to the lake every evening to watch the Canada Geese. Marie develops a special bond with the geese. "They were her family. They were her friends. They were her babies," the McLellans write. Marie is taught that the geese carry the spirits of the departed to the land of promise. Recognising the special bond that Marie has with the geese, the Elders give Marie a new name, Niskaw. The new name enables Marie to share the teachings and the healings of the geese with Marie's people.

Readers will be interested to see that Cree words and phrases occasionally are incorporated into the narrative, but these words are then repeated in English. For those unfamiliar with the language, the narrative flow need not be interrupted to try to pronounce the Cree words, but the presence of those words adds to the interest and educational value of the story."  -CM Magazine

Each book, co-authored by Joseph Bruchac and Michael J. Caduto, combines Native legends with information and activities about the natural world.

Reviews
"This book is an excellent school resource for introducing children to Indigenous worldviews. It is comprised of 18 story packages which may be used as teaching tools in the classroom. The stories are divided by subject nature and include one introduction story, two stories about creation, one about celebration, thanksgiving and stewardship, eight about flowers and fruits, seeds and spores, five about survival, and one about healing our relations. Each traditional story acknowledges the Native North American cultures in which the story originated. An accompanying map helps readers situate where these different cultural groups traditionally resided. The stories are typically one to three pages long, making them ideal for sharing in the oral tradition. The stories are accompanied by beautiful black and white ink drawings, artistically representing the events and characters in each story. Following each story is a discussion prompt to help teachers explain the story’s context. The discussion prompts relate the story to Native North American traditional worldviews and emphasize mankind’s interconnection with the natural world." - Rachel Yaroshuk, CM Magazine
