Grandma's Special Feeling
Author: Karin Clark
Format: Paperback
  • Whenever Grandma gets that “special feeling,” the children know they're about to pile into the van, “get out into nature,” and get a lesson about how First Nations peoples used to live in the old days; and Grandma knows that the children need to be able to experience what she wants to talk to them about. As she passes on this knowledge to the children, she also passes on cultural history about how respect was and continues to be shown to the plants—how they are acknowledged for their contributions and assured they will not be over-harvested.

La Quete Spirituelle de Petit Ours
Author: Diane Silvey
Format: Paperback
  • Little Bear is preoccupied with himself and overtures of friendship by the other animals are quickly rebuffed with taunting and insults. So Grandfather, knowing what to do, sends Little Bear to the island to search his heart. Traditional remedies sometimes take time, a long time. In isolation Little Bear comes face to face with himself and gains insight. In Little Bear, youngsters will see the transformation of an aloof self-centered spirit into a person fit to participate in the communal life of the village, one to whom Grandfather lovingly says, "Welcome home, Little Bear, welcome home." Joe Silvey's illustrations richly complement the story.

Lessons From Mother Earth
Author: Elaine McLeod
Traditional Territory: Na-cho Nyak Dun
Format: Paperback
  • Tess has visited her grandmother many times without really being aware of the garden. But today when they step out the door, Tess learns that all of nature can be a garden. And if you take care of the plants that are growing, if you learn about them - understanding when they flower, when they give fruit, and when to leave them alone - you will always find something to nourish you.

    At the end of the day, Tess is grateful to Mother Earth for having such a lovely garden, and she is thankful for having such a wise grandma.
    Elaine McLeod's poetic text and Colleen Wood's gentle watercolors combine to make Lessons from Mother Earth a celebration of nature and life.

Mouse Celebrates the Winter Solstice
Author: Terri Mack
Traditional Territory: Kwakwaka'wakw
Format: Paperback
  • 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.
