No-Matter-What Friend featured in the National Post!



This week Mark Medley, books editor for the National Post, has recommended Kari Lynn Winters' No-Matter-What Friend his current favourite Canadian picture book.




Fantastic Reviews from Shelley Sommer's Blog



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.
