    « Tous les dimanches ensoleillés, Madame Blaireau emprunte le sentier qui mène au sommet de la montagne. Au cours du trajet, elle salue ses amis, contemple la nature environnante et récolte champignons et autres trouvailles. Un matin, elle rencontre Lulu qui aimerait bien, lui aussi, voir le sommet du monde. C’est le début d’une nouvelle amitié. Marianne Dubuc signe une histoire sur l’entraide, la résilience, et l’importance de la transmission du savoir et des connaissances.

  • Image: Dragonfly Song
    "In Dragonfly Song, Wendy Orr weaves an intriguing mythological portrayal of the Bronze Age Minoan civilization on the island of Crete, where subject nations are forced to send youths each year to dance with bulls in the god-king's bloody ceremonies. Inspired by Crete's frescoes showing figures leaping over the backs of bulls, and by the legend of the Minotaur, Orr spins a gripping story of danger and destiny that will appeal to fans of Percy Jackson and The Hunger Games.​ (From Pajama Press) "

  • Image: Picture the Sky
    " Wherever we may be, we share the same sky. But every hour, every day, every season, whether in the city or the forest, it is different. The sky tells many stories: in the weather, in the clouds, in the stars, in the imagination. Renowned artist Barbara Reid brings her unique vision to a new topic — the sky around us. In brilliant Plasticine illustrations, she envisions the sky above and around us in all its moods. Picture the sky. How do you feel? (From Scholastic Canada) "

    Speaking Our Truth

    A Journey of Reconciliation
    By Gray Smith, Monique
    " Canada's relationship with its Indigenous people has suffered as a result of both the residential school system and the lack of understanding of the historical and current impact of those schools. Healing and repairing that relationship requires education, awareness and increased understanding of the legacy and the impacts still being felt by Survivors and their families. Guided by acclaimed Indigenous author Monique Gray Smith, readers will learn about the lives of Survivors and listen to allies who are putting the findings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission into action.

    Town Is by the Sea

    By Schwartz, Joanne
    " A young boy wakes up to the sound of the sea, visits his grandfather's grave after lunch and comes home to a simple family dinner with his family, but all the while his mind strays to his father digging for coal deep down under the sea. Stunning illustrations by Sydney Smith, the award-winning illustrator of Sidewalk Flowers, show the striking contrast between a sparkling seaside day and the darkness underground where the miners dig.
