Jak's Story
Author: Aaron Bell
Format: Paperback
  • Thirteen-year-old Jak Loren is a typical boy with the usual problems a family with older sisters and younger brothers presents. Never mind the troubles at school - bullies and girls!

    When Jak goes to the ravine near his home in Brantford to get away from Steven Burke, a bully who's been tormenting him, he discovers the ravine has a history that's much older than he thought. He meets Grandfather Rock, who shares with him the story of the people who have lived near the ravine for thousands of years. Soon Jak's eyes are opened to a new world of beings and respect.

    He learns about First Nations people and how their teachings inhabit the spirits of all living things that surround us even today. The tales of the First Nations help Jak to understand that the gift of life is something to be cherished. And when a construction crew arrives in his neighbourhood and threatens his beloved ravine, Jak knows he has to act to save it.

Jen and the Great One
Author: Peter Eyvindson
Format: Paperback
  • Jen and the Great One is a children's picture book with a strong environmental message. Jen is a young child who enjoys playing and sitting beside a giant evergreen tree. She loves the texture of its bark and its Christmas tree smell. If Jen sat very still she could sometimes hear the wind whisper and then the old tree would speak.

    The remainder of the text is a heavy-handed account of clear cutting as explained by this lone tree. It tells the girl how it began from a seedling, how it grew and its role in the forest. But one day a greedy businessman came along and saw money in the forest's resources. Next came a nasty yellow machine that cut down the trees and this went on until only the lone great tree remained. After hearing all of this, Jen leaves the tree. The great tree moans about its fate but is surprised to see Jen and other children returning to rescue the tree.

    Jen and the others begin to plant the tree's seedlings and rejoice in the fact that the great one will once again have fellow trees. Although the author and illustrator clearly speak out against clear cutting of forests, the strong main character is a child who takes action along with other children. The message is clear that even a small child can make a difference when it comes to the environment. This would make an excellent book for discussions about the role of the forest and the devastation brought about by their loss.
