Short story about the residential school system, as told through the re-learning of the Cree word for grandfather - nimosôm. Evocative visual imagery. The text itself could have used slightly more formatting for readability, though, as I don’t think skipping on quotation marks and italicization helped. ( )

A young girl asks her grandfather how to say a word in his native language, Cree. He can't remember, but does remember the trauma of being forced to forget it in a boarding school for native children. The girl sees her grandfather hurting and decides to help by bringing him a book about Cree language. He remembers his mother, he remembers the words, and he thanks his granddaughter.
This book is beautiful. It tackles trauma in a way that children can really wrap their heads' around. The granddaughter sees her grandfather hurting and she wants to take the hurt away. The grandfather is able to process his trauma with the help of his granddaughter. It talks about boarding schools for native children, something I never learned about in elementary school. Horrible places they were sent and forced to learn english and forget their native languages. It uses beautiful imagery to represent language and identity. An emotional and invaluable read. ( )

This is a powerful and beautiful picture book about how language was stolen from Canada’s indigenous children at church-run residential schools, which sought to “beat the Indian out of the Indian.” With its text appropriately written in Plains Cree (followed by English), the book tells the story of a little First Nations girl who is delighted to run home to show her beloved grandfather the dream catcher she has made at school. She wants to call him by the Cree name for grandfather, but he cannot tell her. He explains—and the accompanying illustrations beautifully and symbolically communicate—that his words were stolen by the Catholic brothers in the cold lonely place he was taken to as a child. In a touching development, the little girl resolves to do something so that her grandfather’s words can be restored to him.

I found this a profoundly moving piece, focusing as it does on the importance of language and the bond between grandparents and grandchildren. Genuine hopefulness about the future is communicated.

I hope this book will make its way onto the Ontario Library Association’s Silver Blue Spruce Picture Book Awards. It is a lovely and worthy addition to the growing body of works for children about indigenous experience. ( )

Top 100 pick because:

I cried a little at this one as well. This true story-while fiction technically, is the truth of too many people. The portrayal of how the words were taken from the little girl's grandfather, the black crow, is pround in it's symbolic meaning. I can see why the words won a writing context. The illustrations enhance the story through the shift in color and hue, the sepia-rendered past and the sof but vivid blues, green, & yellows of modern times. It is well executed in what it wants to convey. ( )

A grandfather and granddaughter bond over sharing the history of him losing language by force. And how they try to find their language again.
