Old Enough
Author: Peter Eyvindson
Format: Paperback
Peter Eyvindson, a Saskatchewan storyteller, and Wendy Wolsak, a British Columbia artist, have joined their talents in order to create their second children's picture book, Old Enough. Their first endeavour resulted in the publication of the delightful Kyle's Bath.

The text is easy enough for primary children to read independently. However, Old Enough is a book with a message that seems to be directed more towards parents than towards children. It tells of the relationship between a man and his son.

There is a repetitive quality to the book, which is evident in both text and illustrations. Holding his newborn son, the father dreams of what they will do together when he becomes "old enough." These wishes are illustrated by tiny figures cavorting on the quilt. As the boy grows, the father becomes caught in the demands of an adult world. He has "time enough only for his meetings, his conventions and his work." The father's dreams become the boy's solitary activities. This gives the book a sad, melancholy quality. This impression continues to the end of the book, in spite of the author's attempt to develop a happy ending.

Wendy Wolsak's detailed black-and-white illustrations interpret and enhance the text superbly. As in Kyle's Bath, she has used native people as models for the characters. Calendars at the side of the double-page illustrations mark the passage of time and give a continuity to the characters as they mature. Her soft-textured illustrations add to the wistful quality of the book.

Old Turtle and the Broken Truth
Author: Douglas Wood

In this profoundly moving fable, the earth and all its creatures are suffering, for the people will not share their Truth, which gives them happiness and power, with those who are different from them. Then one brave Little Girl seeks the wisdom of the ancient Old Turtle, who sees that the people's Truth is not a whole truth, but broken. Old Turtle shows the girl the missing part of the Truth, and the Little Girl returns with it to her people.

On the Shoulder of a Giant
Content Territory: Inuit
Format: Hardcover
This pan-Arctic Inuit legend, which tells the story of a friendly giant, is lightheartedly retold, featuring sweeping illustrations.

Inukpak was big, even for a giant. He loved to walk across the tundra, striding over the widest rivers and wading through the deepest lakes. He could walk across the Arctic in just a few days.

But being so big, and travelling so far, Inukpak was often alone. Until one day when he came across a little hunter on the tundra. Thinking that the hunter was a little boy alone on the land, Inukpak decided to adopt him. And so, from the shoulder of one of the biggest giants to ever roam the Arctic, this hunter experiences the world from Inukpak's perspective.

Educator Information

Once in a Blue Moon
Author: Danielle Daniel
Content Territory: Métis
Format: Hardcover
Inspired by the expression “once in a blue moon,” Danielle Daniel has created a book of short poems, each one describing a rare or special experience that turns an ordinary day into a memorable one. She describes the thrill of seeing a double rainbow, the Northern Lights or a shooting star as well as quieter pleasures such as spotting a turtle basking in the sun or a family of ducks waddling across the road.

In simple words and delightful naïve images, Once in a Blue Moon celebrates the magical moments that can be found in the beauty and wonders of nature.

With the same simple yet sophisticated design as Danielle’s award-winning picture book Sometimes I Feel Like a Fox, this book is a very accessible and inviting introduction to poetry for young readers.

One Well: The Story of Water on Earth
Format: Hardcover
Seen from space, our planet looks blue. This is because almost 70 percent of Earth's surface is covered with water. Earth is the only planet with liquid water — and therefore the only planet that can support life.

All water is connected. Every raindrop, lake, underground river and glacier is part of a single global well.

Water has the power to change everything — a single splash can sprout a seed, quench a thirst, provide a habitat, generate energy and sustain life. How we treat the water in the well will affect every species on the planet, now and for years to come. One Well shows how every one of us has the power to conserve and protect our global well.

One Well is part of CitizenKid: A collection of books that inform children about the world and inspire them to be better global citizens.
