Stunning art enhances this telling and retelling of the famous stories. Modern morals accompany each tale. A good choice for intergenerational sharing.
49th Shelf interviews Julie Flett, illustrator of Dolphin SOS
Right now is a particularly amazing time for Canadian children's literature, in particular due to a fleet of incredible illustrators whose work has catapulted us into a golden age. Julie Flett is one of them.
What I really like about this story is its message about water. Our younger students learn about the fundamental needs that all people share. Anna Carries Water is a book teachers could use to introduce a lesson about the importance of water to everyone’s daily life.
This book has everything students like most in a story: animals, kids as heroes, and a happy ending. The illustrations are crisp and elegant.
This book would be an excellent gift for kids who enjoy reading Greek myths.
This sweet elegiac story about a boy and a dog growing older together . . . is an evocation of the special relationship many of us have had with our animal friends.
I am looking forward to sharing all of these books with our students. They reminded me to pay closer attention to the excellent books being published north of the border.
