Taan's Moons: A Haida Moon Story is a fascinating art-based picture book developed by Alison Gear (poetry) and Kiki van der Heiden and the student artists of Haida Gwaii. During a three month art project involving Kindergarten (some mixed Grade 1/2) classes of all six elementary schools on Haida Gwaii, BC, the author and artist worked together to create this 48-page book about the Bear's Moons. In Haida language taan refers to the bear. The Haida people have a unique way of recording time according to the way the bear follows the seasons or months of the year.
Trip to the Moon is a unique bilingual picture book from Inhabit Media's imprint Inhabit Community in collaboration with the community of Pangnirtung. This exciting science fiction story about an oil drum captures the contemporary feeling of the children in this town on the coast of Baffin Island which can only be reached by sea or air. Told by Vera Evic the story reaches magical proportions when the oil drum takes flight to the moon. Taking three children into space and landing on the moon's surface introduces readers to little people on the moon.
