Bilingual in Cree ("n" dialect or Swampy Cree) and English, this book tells the story of a child and his grandma discovering the woods together. The illustrations are beautiful! Don't miss this lovely book. Ages 4 - 7

A simple book featuring the Cree "n" dialect language.

As Clarence grows older, he continues to enjoy the company of his grandma, encountering many aspects of nature within the woods. It is a peaceful existence where they harvest the berries that grow there. While the written words have no plot, they are meant to exude this atmosphere, as well as teach a few words from the language.

The pictures are another thing entirely. They have a cut-and-paste paper feel made in mostly earth tones. It is this that gives the book its beauty.

A pronunciation guide is included in the back, as well as a recipe for wild-berry jam.
