Two award-winning voices.

Two stories on Reconciliation.

Two amazing covers.

One unforgettable book.

The Journey Forward, A Novella On Reconciliation: When We Play Our Drums, They Sing! by Richard Van Camp

This the story of 12-year-old Dene Cho, who is angry that his people are losing their language, traditions, and ways of being. Elder Snowbird is there to answer some of Dene Cho's questions, and to share their history including the impact Residential schools continue to have on their people. It is through this conversation with Snowbird that Dene Cho begins to find himself, and begins to realize that understanding the past can ultimately change the future.

Tessa Macintosh's wonderful photographs are featured on the cover and interior of this memorable story.

The Journey Forward, A Novella On Reconciliation: Lucy & Lola by Monique Gray Smith

Lucy and Lola are 11-year-old twins who are heading to Gabriola Island, BC, to spend the summer with their Kookum (grandmother) while their mother studies for the bar exam. During their time with Kookum, the girls begin to learn about her experiences in being sent -- and having to send their mother -- to Residential school. Ultimately, they discover what it means to be intergenerational survivors.

Award-winning illustrator Julie Flett created the amazing cover illustration and interior spot art that perfectly suit this engaging novella.

Please note: These titles have been bound together in a "flipbook" format, giving readers, educators, parents, caregivers, and more the chance to share and experience two points-of-view on Residential schools and Reconciliation in one compelling package.
