Editorial Reviews

"The illustrations are striking and showcase the unique style of renowned Mi'kmaq artist, Alan Syliboy. Highly recommended for personal, school and public libraries that serve preschool clients." —Resource Links (Pouch Cove, NF)


"Books like Mi'kmaw Waisisk = Mi'kmaw Animals play an important role in the reconciliation process, and its purchase should not just be limited to those areas of Canada where Mi'kmaw was once used as a first language." —Canadian Materials Magazine (Winnipeg, MB)
