Coming Soon: Children’s Books and Games!

The positive response to our children’s board books and colouring books released earlier this year has encouraged us to expand our line of children’s products.

We’re proud to introduce two new board books, a hardcover book for older children, and a matching game suitable for children of all ages.

Learn about Northwest Coast Native Animals with “Sharing Our World” board book and “Sharing our World” hardcover edition.  Each book features artwork and quotes by various artists that explore the natural world and each animal’s significance to Native culture.

We’ve also started working with Kelly Robinson, a Native artist from the Nuxalk and Nuu – chah – nulth Nations.  In his board book “Northwest Coast Native Animals” Kelly uses his unique style to illustrate the animals important to his culture.

Last but not least, our Matching Game, also featuring Northwest Coast Native Animals, is fun for the whole family.  Young ones can look at all the colours and pictures while older kids and even adults can play traditional matching games.

All our new products are great for learning and for fun – making them ideal gifts as well as great resources for the classroom.

We look forward to your feedback!

“A Book in Every Home” Board Book Giveaway!

As part of our efforts to give back to the First Nations community we have launched our “Book in Every Home” campaign.  Our goal is to help enhance early childhood learning and literacy by providing every child with a book of their own. Research has indicated that reading books at home increases literacy.

We have already partnered with Head Start programs and other Aboriginal Early Childhood Development Programs and 700 books have already been distributed to children to take to their homes. We are now looking to partner with on reserve Head Start programs to distribute the remaining 300 books for this year and to make plans for distribution of another 1000 books for next year.

If you are an administrator at any Head Start program on reserve, and are interested in receiving free books for the children in your programs to take home, then please contact us. Please leave a comment on our blog with your contact information and the number of books you need.  We’ll keep sending them until our last 300 are donated and make plans for next year.

We look forward to your comments!
