Readers are immersed in a world where all genders are respected, the tiniest being has influence in the world, and unconditional love binds families and communities to each other and to their homeland. Sprinkled with gentle humour and the Anishinaabe language, this collection of stories speaks to children and adults alike, and reminds us of the timelessness of stories that touch the heart. Reviews A SOLS First Nation Communities READ recommended title, 2015–2016 - Southern Ontario Library Service [These stories] embrace and embellish the teachings, reflecting their established power for today's listeners and readers of all ages. The words and images [roll] effortlessly off the tongue (and eyes). Highly Recommended. - Gail de Vos This was an absolutely exquisite book. ..sprinkled about with Nishnaabemowin so by the end of the book, you’ll be newly familiar with a number of beautiful words. ..This felt like a book of sacred texts. - Johannes C.
