Description

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. This e-book of When the Trees Crackle with Cold invites Cree and non-Cree speakers alike to explore the traditional moon calendar. It is written in English with Cree translations in the Woodland Cree th-dialect.
