Simply Read Books

A picture book that warms the heart, despite being set in the frozen North, Missuk’s Snow Geese is the story of a girl who wishes to become a great carver like her father. Her dreams are waylaid by worry when a snowstorm hits and he does not return home from a hunting trip. In a surprise twist, Missuk saves the day with her own artistic creations on the land about her family’s igloo – “snow geese” that serve as beacons for her disoriented father. Anne Renaud’s delightful tale of a self-doubting child who comes to see her strengths is well matched by Geneviève Côté’s illustrations, which breathe movement and colour in a quiet, white world. (Ages 3 – 7) mRb

Andrea Belcham lives in Saint-Lazare, where many of her best neighbours are trees.
