Gallery: When the Trees Crackle With Cold

A bear sleeping safely in her den, Kohkom telling a story by the fire, the trees crackling with cold—we are all connected to the seasons and the cycle of nature. The calming rhythm of the words echoes the rhythm of the land in this timeless picture book about the moon calendar of the northern Cree, and its warmly rendered watercolour illustrations bring Saskatchewan’s north to life. When the Trees Crackle with Cold is written in English and the northern Plains Cree y-dialect, inviting Cree and non-Cree speakers alike to explore the traditional moon calendar.

While many parts of the country are still themselves crackling with cold, we're so happy to share this gallery featuring images from writer Bernice Johnson-Laxdal and illustrator Miriam Körner's beautiful picture book.
