Les mots voles

- Children's paperback

by Melanie Florence - $11.99 - Add to Cart

See below for English description. Curieuse d'en savoir davantage sur ses origines, une petite fille demande à son grand-père de prononcer un mot en langue crie. Celui-ci est attristé lorsqu'il réalise qu'il l'a oublié, conséquence de nombreuses années passées en école résidentielle. Il lui dit qu'il a « perdu les mots » lors de son passage là-bas, et elle décide donc de l'aider à les retrouver. Un récit touchant sur les relations intergénérationnelles et une initiation tout en délicatesse à la découverte d'un épisode plutôt sombre de l'histoire du Canada.   When a man's granddaughter asks him how to say 'grandfather' in Cree, it unleashes a river of emotion when he admits that he doesn't know his language anymore. Seeing her grandfather upset, she helps him find his words again. This sensitive, beautifully illustrated picture book explores the intergenerational impact of the residential school system that separated young Indigenous children from their families. The story recognizes the pain of those whose culture and language were taken from them, how that pain is passed down, and how healing can also be shared. Original title: Stolen Words

Salsa

- Children's paperback

by Jorge Argueta - $8.95 - Add to Cart

In this new cooking poem, Jorge Argueta brings us a fun and easy recipe for a yummy salsa. A young boy and his sister gather the ingredients and grind them up in a molcajete, just like their ancestors used to do, singing and dancing all the while.The children imagine that their ingredients are different parts of an orchestra -- the tomatoes are bongos and kettledrums, the onion, a maraca, the cloves of garlic, trumpets and the cilantro, the conductor. They chop and then grind these ingredients in the molcajete, along with red chili peppers for the "hotness" that is so delicious, finally adding a squeeze of lime and a sprinkle of salt. When they are finished, their mother warms tortillas and their father lays out plates, as the whole family, including the cat and dog, dance salsa in mouth-watering anticipation.Winner of the International Latino Book Award for Guacamole, Jorge Argueta has once again written a recipe-poem that families will delight in.Each book in the cooking poem series features a talented illustrator from the Latino world. In Salsa the text is complemented by the rich, earthy illustrations of multiple award-winning illustrator Duncan Tonatiuh. His interest in honoring the art of the past in contemporary contexts is evident in these wonderful illustrations, which evoke the pre-Columbian Mixtec codex.
