Authors:
Jennifer Noah
Artists:
Qin Leng
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian; Inuit;
Grade Levels: Kindergarten; 1; 2; 3;

Adoption among Inuit families—known as Inuit custom adoption—is a unique and age-old practice that sees families within Nunavut placing children with adoptive parents in the community as they see fit. This tradition remains a celebrated part of Inuit culture and identity to this day.

Nala’s Magical Mitsiaq tells the story of how Nala and Qiatsuk became sisters through Inuit custom adoption. This story, lovingly based on the author’s own family, explains the unique process of custom adoption and introduces kids to the importance of adoption within Inuit culture. Adorable illustrations and heartfelt text bring this tale of family love to life for readers both familiar and unfamiliar with this unique cultural tradition.

Nature's Patchwork Quilt: Understanding Habitats
Authors:

Artists:
Consie Powell
Format: Paperback
Grade Levels: 1; 2; 3; 4; 5;

Just imagine all of nature—mountains, prairies, oceans, and all—lying on your bed as a patchwork quilt! Take flora and fauna in their unique habitats, fold them up and you have a book, this book. Earth’s major habitats are spread before you, ready to be examined. Here in this beautiful package are revealed the key concepts of natural science. This patchwork quilt of nature covers the whole Earth, your home—yours to learn about, to enjoy, to care for, and to love.

Reviews
"What a delightful way to present the habitats of the world—all in patchwork quilt designs! The comparison of quilt squares joined together to form a beautiful quilt to that of the habitats of the world combined to create our remarkable planet is presented in such a creative way through the illustrations of Consie Powell. As the pages unfold, readers will find themselves immersed in the desert, rainforest, or ocean habitat for example, with the vegetation and wildlife of that particular biome portrayed in the surrounding quilt-like border. Vocabulary such as interdependence, adaptations, and biodiversity are introduced and explained in a simplistic way for young readers to understand. A quilt design with each of its squares devoted to an environmentalist of the world is also presented including Rachel Carson examining ocean vegetation, John Muir exploring the forest, and Jane Goodall observing a chimpanzee. Two pages at the back of the book are full of author tips on how to incorporate this title into different areas of the curriculum. Classrooms and libraries will want to include this title in their science collections." — Ingram Book Co. (June 2012)

Nibi Emosaawdang / The Water Walker
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian; First Nations; Anishinaabeg; Ojibway;
Grade Levels: 1; 2; 3; 4;

The dual language edition, in Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe) and English, of the award-winning story of a determined Ojibwe Nokomis (Grandmother) Josephine-ba Mandamin and her great love for Nibi (water). Nokomis walked to raise awareness of our need to protect Nibi for future generations, and for all life on the planet. She, along with other women, men, and youth, have walked around all the Great Lakes from the four salt waters, or oceans, to Lake Superior. The walks are full of challenges, and by her example Josephine-ba invites us all to take up our responsibility to protect our water, the giver of life, and to protect our planet for all generations.

Educator Information
This is the dual-language edition, in Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe) and English, of The Water Walker

Recommended for ages 6-9.

This dual-language edition contains a note on the book's translation into Anishinaabemowin by Shirley Williams -- a fellow water walker -- and Isadore Toulouse, both of whom are from Josephine-ba's home community of Wiikwemkoong Unceded First Nation. The translations draw special meaning from the fact that both Shirley and Nokomis were sent to residential school, where they were forbidden from speaking their language. Nokomis was able to read the translation before her passing, and took great joy in the fact that this book would not be shared in Anishinaabemowin.

Nibi's Water Song
Format: Hardcover
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian; First Nations; Anishinaabeg;
Grade Levels: Preschool; Kindergarten; 1; 2; 3;

Determination, teamwork, and perseverance together bring clean water for Nibi and all her friends.

Nibi is the Anishinaabemowin word for water. In Nibi's Water Song, an Indigenous girl is on the search for clean water to drink. Though she is faced with repeated obstacles, Nibi's joyful and determined energy becomes a catalyst for change and action as her community, and then in widening circles the country and government, rally around her to make clean drinking water available for all. In a story perfectly levelled for young readers, there is a strong underlying message that even when a problem seems too large to face, every bit that everyone does helps. And inaction in the face of a wrong is not an option.

Sunshine Tenasco, an Anishinabeg activist for clean water, has an amazing optimistic spirit that shines through her writing. The hopeful tone and lyrical read-aloud quality of this gentle allegorical tale open the door to conversations and action aimed at young children, whether they are on a reserve that does not have clean water or they are living with access to clean water. Chief Lady Bird's stunning, original artwork carries through the themes of strength, hope, and resilience in an incredible collaboration of talent.
