Description

Une journée poney! Pemkiskahk'ciw ahahsis! A pony day! is in three languages — French, the Maliseet language, and English — and has a link to access an audio recording of Elder, Opolahsomuwehs (Imelda Perley) reading the story in the Maliseet language, with a drum sound for each page turn. This story is written by Hélène de Varennes and illustrated by Paul Lang. Une journée poney! Pemkiskahk'ciw ahahsis! A pony day! focuses on the relationship between a little Maliseet girl (Ava) and her grandfather (Billy) as they celebrate her sixth birthday with a pony ride for her. The story progresses with photo illustrations of Ava, Billy, and Luna the pony. As Joséphine looks at her grandfather she wonders whether he’s serious. After all, he loves to joke around! A pony has neither a steering wheel to drive it, nor seat to sit in… how will she ever stay on a pony and guide it to the pond?
