Description

In Emma's Gift, a recent title authored by Métis writer Deborah L Delaronde-Falk, celebrates a little-known Métis event known as annual preparation of Kings’ Day, the Epiphany.  Emma wants to participate in her community’s annual ‘King’s Day’ celebration that is held every year on January 6th. She loves to see the gifts that are given and hear the stories people tell when they visit. Her mother, however, feels that Emma is too young. When Emma’s grandmother hurts herself, Emma reluctantly agrees to help. In helping her grandmother prepare and serve her King’s Day meal, Emma discovers the meaning behind this special day. ‘King’s Day’ is about celebrating Christ’s birth and the Three Wise Kings who visited the baby Jesus bearing gifts on this holy day. Emma learns that ‘King’s Day’ is not only about exchanging gifts, it’s also about helping family and friends by giving one's time. Métis children’s author Deborah L. Delaronde-Falk has won the Beatrice Mosionier Aboriginal Writer of the Year award with her latest book titled Emma’s Gift. She received the prestigious award at the Manitoba Book Awards in April 2015. An ideal resource for Catholic School boards.
