During the month of May we have been reading Aborginal stories in the library.
Some classes have been reading books by author/illustrator Julie Flett. We have noticed her use of the colour red and other earth toned colours. We also noticed how her books make us feel peaceful and happy. We have learned a few new words and phrases in Michif and Cree.
Other classes have been reading new books like Taan’s Moons by Alison Gear. We loved the amazing felt artwork created by Kiki van der Heiden and students from various schools on Haida Gwaii.
Finally some classes have enjoyed reading Orca Chief, Raven Brings the Light and Cloudwalker by Roy Henry Vickers and Robert Budd. We are amazed at the beautiful paintings and enjoy trying to find the hidden clues in each illustration.
