Gorgeously illustrated with felted art by Kiki van der Heiden and children from Haida Gwaii, Taan’s Moons follows a bear through the year and the different stages of the moon. Although neither author nor illustrator are of Haida descent, this book and the art work were completed in consultation and collaboration with elders, teachers, and children of Haida Gwaii. There are print and audio translations available in the Skidegate Haida dialect.
When teachers request a book that will explore Aboriginal understandings of seasons and this is what I will recommend. This book was chosen as the book given to prospective Kindergarten students during Welcome to Kindergarten.
