Why we love this book: With its colourful illustrations, The Loudest Bark takes an early age approach to exploring issues of gender identity through the story of Samuel who feels that their real identity is Simone. As they navigate how to tell their parents, a new next-door neighbour who is a costume designer, along with her dog (who is about to have puppies!), helps bring new light to finding their true self.

kiskajeyi_unwrap blog

Why we love this book: Winner of the 2020 Indigenous Voices Award, this debut poetry collection from Michelle Sylliboy preserves the complex L'nuk language, Komqwejwi’kasikl through word art and paired photographs. The images contained within relate the powerful connection of the language to the L'nuk landscape—a mapping of the land and of nature that stands for future generations to interpret and learn from.
