Description

Misaabe's Stories: A Story of Honesty explores the meaning of one of the Seven Grandfather Teachings through the imagination and storytelling of a young boy named Misaabe. This Ojibwe boy is always telling creative stories about trolls, and x-ray glasses, and secret agents, and his super-exciting life. He tries to convince his classmates that these tales are totally true. One day the outrageous tales catch up to Misaabe when his mom comes to school to speak to the teacher. She helps this imaginative boy continue his storytelling and always use his gift with honesty. Misaabe's Stories is one book in The Seven Teachings Stories series. The Seven Teachings of the Anishinaabe—love, wisdom, humility, courage, respect, honesty, and truth—are revealed in these seven stories for children from Highwater Press. Set in an urban landscape with Indigenous children as the central characters, these stories about home and family will look familiar to all young readers. The heartfelt stories serve as cultural bridges to non-Indigenous people wishing to familiarize themselves and their children with contemporary Indigenous culture. Métis writer Katherena Vermette has written these seven charming stories that demonstrate the simple and powerful messages contained within the Seven Grandfather Teachings. Illustrations by University of Manitoba graduate Irene Kuziw are in soft pencil crayons, showing Aboriginal children in familiar settings.
