"Children’s books seek to assist children to understand themselves and their world. Unsettling Narratives: Postcolonial Readings of Children’s Literature demonstrates how settler-society texts position child readers as citizens of postcolonial nations, how they represent the colonial past to modern readers, what they propose about race relations, and how they conceptualize systems of power and government."--pub. desc.
"A compilation of work by Native parents, children, educators, poets and writers, A Broken Flute contains, from a Native perspective, 'living stories,' essays, poetry, and hundreds of reviews of 'children's books about Indians.' It's an indispensable volume for anyone interested in presenting honest materials by and about indigenous peoples to children."--pub. desc.
"Inuit Elder Matilda Sulurayok draws on her memories of traditional dog rearing in this wonderful companion volume featuring young Inuit boy Jake and his eponymous frolicking pup. In this instalment, Jake’s dog has grown, but he’s still got a lot to learn. Sulurayok’s exuberant voice is well-matched by lively illustrations from Qin Leng…” Quill & Quire
