The Bear's Medicine / Sus Yoo
Format: Hardcover
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian; First Nations; Dene; Dakelh (Carrier);
Grade Levels: 1; 2; 3;

How does a mother bear feed her babies? Off the land, of course.

A mother bear shares with her cubs how to be grateful for all they have in the natural world. The Bear's Medicine shows the interconnectedness of all things in the world they live in and how each season brings changes and blessings for the bears. It is a story of a mother's love for her children as she teaches them how to survive.

Written in English and Dakelh.

Reviews
"In this bilingual story, a mother bear teaches her cubs how to live in relationship to the land. Emphasizing gratitude, interdependence, and ancestry, Cree/Dakelh author and artist Gauthier conveys the wisdom of growing up and cultural inheritance through the movements of a bear family.... Valuable for its rich imagery and simple yet multifaceted storytelling, this stands as a beautifully told, #ownvoices offering that focuses less on plot and more on fascinating concepts." - Kirkus Reviews

Educator Information
Recommended for ages 6-8.

Keywords: bear, Indigenous, interconnectedness, medicine, nature, animals.
