When you go for a walk in nature, who do you see? What do you hear?
|From The Publisher*||Children and adults explore the West Coast landscape, where they encounter various animals who share their names in Nłe7kepmxcín or Halq'emeylem, along with teachings about our place in the world.|
Stand Like a Cedar is a work of grace and dignity, a celebration of land, family, and knowing who you are and where you come from and being so grateful for everything you've been given. Bravo, Nicola Campbell and Carrielynn Victor for creating this treasure. I love it.
Campbell's rhythmic writing is wonderful, conveying important messages about the environment and family. Victor's vibrant renderings accompany the engaging text nicely. Bold illustrations portray elements such as weather, nature, and animals alongside evocative details like glowing skylines.
[An] evocative book that poetically explores how important it is for us to see ourselves as part of the land. Victor's illustrations bring that world to life.
Paired with illustrations by Carrielynn Victor, Stand Like a Cedar shines brightly, in both its text and artwork.
Stand Like a Cedar is a strong song of peoples and place. It's emotive and instructive and begs us all to be attentive to how we interact with the land and its life.
A beautifully articulated book about the changing seasons and the connection to nature, family and oneself.
