A short fiction for younger readers.

I read this as part of an indigenous writers challenge that I've decided to do this year. I'm reading as many pieces written by indigenous people of Turtle Island as I can find.

I gave this book 5 stars because it was really wholesome. A lot of indigenous literature is really heavy because of all the trauma that has come from colonization. This one didn't talk a whole lot about that - instead it focused on an indigenous child connecting with her grandmother.

So, one of many things I love about the Dear Canada series is that it doesn't shy away from shameful moments in this country's history.

This entire series is a wonderful way to learn history or teach it to adolescents. I find today's generations seem to recall more when they learn through other people (pop songs, celebrity gossip, etc.), so what better way to teach history than through someone else's perspective? Yes, "authentic" diaries would be "better", but would the language really hold the modern student's attention? Did the diary writer know what WOULD be important in the context of history? Probably not.
