Children and teenagers stroll between the skyscrapers in Vancouver, and experience the city in a different way that adults do. They have helped Vancouver transform from humble trading post to towering metropolis, yet how often are they asked to tell their side of the story? Vancouver Kids is a collection of tales about the unforgettable young people of the city of Vancouver. Based on personal interviews and thorough archival research, each true story is narrated in the voice of a young Vancouverite. Join in the adventure as these kids dodge the first cars on newly paved streets, watch the famous Stanley Park take shape, gaze up at brand new high-rises, and even learn the secrets—and dangers—behind big city crime. Vancouver Kids arrives just in time to celebrate the 125th birthday of the city of Vancouver on April 6th, 2011.

It is the fifth book in the Courageous Kids series, which includes Kidmonton: Stories of River City Kids, Rocky Mountain Kids, Island Kids, and Northern Kids. For more about this exciting series, please visit www.courageouskids.ca.

Voices from the Wild: An Animal Sensagoria
Artists:
Ron Parker
Format: Paperback
Grade Levels: 4; 5; 6;

What would it be like if more than two dozen different wild animals from around the world got together to boast about their senses? David Bouchard delivers a unique exploration of the realm of the senses in 25 animal portraits. In warm, lyrical verse, Bouchard introduces the reader to some fascinating aspects of natural history and explores each sense—sight, smell, touch, hearing, and taste—through the voices of such captivating animals as the eagle, orca, wildebeest, cougar, elephant, moose, koala, and wolf.

Enhancing Bouchard's whimsical poetry are the wildlife paintings of noted British Columbia artist Ron Parker. In fact, it is the artist whom the various animals try to impress with their respective senses, whether it is the grizzly's lofty claims for best smell, the penguin's gentle declaration of superior vision, or the gorilla's confident assertion of closeness to humans in all senses.

David Bouchard's vivid poetry and Ron Parker's wonderful artwork breathe life into this endearing menagerie, reminding us of how precious our wildlife is. Together, artist and poet have created a heartfelt portrayal of the age-old relationship between humans and animals, one that young and old alike will remember and cherish.

Voici Tom Longboat, originaire des Six Nations en Ontario, un coureur onondaga renommé dans le monde entier qui a battu les records et brisé les stéréotypes.

Par la suite, il a pulvérisé record après record et s'est fait des légions d'admirateurs au Canada et dans le monde entier. Mais Tom était bien plus qu'un athlète inspirant : il s'est engagé durant la Première Guerre mondiale et a combattu vaillamment. Tom était aussi un père de famille et un citoyen dévoué.

Durant sa carrière, Tom a toujours pris ses propres décisions… et il a connu le succès par ses propres moyens.
