Looking for your next read? Check out We are Water Protectors by Carole Lindstrom, reviewed by Fulco Library staff, Adrienne D.
Carole Lindstrom and Michaela Goade have penned the perfect children's book to teach youngsters to protect their environment and become advocates for issues they support. This award-winning book introduces children to the Ojibwe culture and that women are protectors of water, and everyone is responsible for their environment.
The author introduces the indigenous culture movement of water and earth protection very concretely and shares that water is our first medicine, but it is also sacred and must be protected from the black snake. This is a wonderful way to teach young children to protect their environment.
In addition to this wonderful story embedded in indigenous traditions, the author includes some great resources in the back of the book. This enables readers to learn more about why water is vital to many indigenous peoples and ends with a pledge for children to be earth and water protectors. Will you be an earth steward and water protector?
