Description

SkySisters is a children's picture book by Ojibwe writer and storyteller Jan Bourdeau Waboose. In this contemporary story set in the winter season, two sisters go outdoors to play in the magical world of snow and moonlight to wait for the arrival of the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). The sisters bundle up in their parkas and mittens and as they head outdoors their mother reminds them of Nokomis' teachings, wisdom comes on silent wings. The two girls play and run through the snow. On their way to a hill they see a deer, and a white rabbit. The older sister reminds her younger sibling to whisper as they climb up the hill. At the top they enjoy the night sky and make snow angels as they await the arrival of the Sky Spirits (Northern Lights). When the lights arrive, the sisters rename them the SkySisters as they watch the colourful lights dance in the night sky. The exceptional artwork by Brian Deines captures the joy and wonder of the two sisters as they explore a winter night. This story captures the childhood experiences of two sisters as they appreciate their Northern environment. Recommended for children age 3 and up. Selected as the 2005 First Nations Public Libraries Community Reads title.
