Haunting and thought-provoking. -- Toronto Star Reseña del editor In this introduction to the Anishinaabe tradition of totem animals young children explain why they identify with different creatures such as a deer beaver or moose. Delightful illustrations show the children wearing masks representing their chosen animal while the few lines of text on each page work as a series of simple poems throughout the book. In a brief author’s note Danielle Daniel explains the importance of totem animals in Anishinaabe culture and how they can also act as animal guides for young children seeking to understand themselves and others.
