I always enjoy Julie Flett s illustrations I wish this book had included a pronunciation guide, though, since the syilx words are not easy if even possible for an English speaker to sound out. Another beautiful OwnVoices from illustrator Julie Flett Cree Metis , and the debut for Catherine Jameson Shuswap Okanagan This book is special because of its clear centering of young syilx Okanagan readers gentle repetition of words translated into syilx enables the learning and recognition of indigenous vocabulary Syilx traditional knowledge keeper and language specialist, Richard Armstrong, contributed the translations for this story. Beautiful illustrations and simple text The text isn t quite something I would read aloud in a story time but I think for a grown up teaching a child the Okanagan language this would be really lovely There is no pronunciation of the Syilx words, so I think the intention is for it to be read by a bilingual adult to a child Children sometimes resist books written completely in a language they don t speak but a caregiver speaks and is maybe trying to teach them , so this might be really helpfu Beautiful illustrations and simple text The text isn t quite something I would read aloud in a story time but I think for a grown up teaching a child the Okanagan language this would be really lovely There is no pronunciation of the Syilx words, so I think the intention is for it to be read by a bilingual adult to a child Children sometimes resist books written completely in a language they don t speak but a caregiver speaks and is maybe trying to teach them , so this might be really helpful for those bilingual adults looking to sprinkle words into their reading experience Told in english with a skattering of Okanagan words a young girl and her father explor nature looking for the mother of a new fawn One on one Lovely, but I wish for a pronunciation guide
