Rabbit and Bear Paws Sacred Seven Ojibwe & English (set of 7 books and audio CDs): Waaboos Miinawaa Mkwa Zidens is the Ojibwe and English edition of Rabbit and Bear Paws Sacred Seven series of 7 titles from Little Spirit Bear Productions. Author and illustrator Chad Solomon and educator Tanya Leary have combined their talents to create this bilingual series. The Ojibwe translation appears in black font beneath the blue font English text. Ojibwe translation is provided by James Shawana. Based on the Seven Grandfather Teachings, this set of seven picture books contain the characters, 12-year-old Rabbit, 10-year-old Bear Paws, and 11-year-old Strawberry, developed by Chad Solomon in his The Adventures of Rabbit and Bear Paws graphic novel offerings.  This new selection contains seven stand alone titles each one based on one of the Seven Grandfather Teachings: Courage, Honesty, Humility, Love, Respect, Truth, and Wisdom.  Each of the books features a respected animal or creature such as Buffalo (Bishikee, Respect), Mouse Waawaabigoonoojii, Humility), Eagle (Migizi, Love), Big Foot (Kitchi-Sabe, Honesty), Turtle (Mizheekay, Truth), Beaver (Ahmik, Wisdom), and Bear (Mukwa, Courage). Each book is 18 pages and features a brief description of each of the main characters.  Simple colour illustrations by Chad Solomon support the storylines developed by Chad Solomon and educator Tanya Leary. The authors and illustrator use humourous storylines as the young heroes attempt to learn the true meaning of these traditional values by copying the actions of each animal or bird. The result is seven fun-filled stories as the three friends learn something about the natural world and important lessons along the way. Each title is accompanied by an audio CD with the story narrated in English and Ojibwe. The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) has presented Hamilton-Wentworth occasional teacher Chad Solomon with its 2013 Children’s Literature Award for his book entitled Rabbit and Bear Paws – Sacred Seven: Courage. Recommended. This collection supports K to Grade 3 Language Strands; Reading, Writing, Oral Communication (Listening and Speaking), Arts 1- 3, Science, 1- 3, Social Studies, 1- 3. Lesson Plans for this series are available at http://rabbitandbearpaws.com/teachings/
