Book - Nokum: Ma Voix et Mon Coeur (French Edition)

Artist: David Bouchard

Nokum Is My Teacher relates the story of a grandson in conversation with his elder questioning the necessity of learning to read and of gaining a greater understanding of the world outside the reservation in contrast to knowledge of his heritage through oral traditions. Though she never gives a definitive answer, the wise elder uses Socratic dialogue to lead the child to the realization that he can learn more about both worlds through reading. This is a cross-curricular text which integrates the Cree language, beautiful illustrations by famed artist Alan Sapp, and a musical accompaniment on CD by Northern Cree, the Grammy award nominated group for best native album.w
