Another amazing book. Our students need to listen to these stories...so beautifully written and illustrated. Winner of best picture book on resilience and oppression by #bookstagramchoiceawards . . . When a young girl helps tend to her grandmother’s garden, she begins to notice things that make her curious. Why does her grandmother have long, braided hair and beautifully coloured clothing? Why does she speak another language and spend so much time with her family? As she asks her grandmother about these things, she is told about life in a residential school a long time ago, where all of these things were taken away. When We Were Alone is a story about a difficult time in history, and, ultimately, one of empowerment and strength.
So far there have been some amazing books published in the first month of 2018. This book is buzzing among some members of our team. Does it have the potential to be crowned best #girlpower picture book of the year? .. We look forward to the start of the 2018 book awards in late November.
