See below for English description.

Parfois je suis un renard
rusé et astucieux.
J'observe mon entourage.
Puis, en un clin d'œil, je disparais.

Dans cette introduction enjouée aux animaux totémiques de la tradition anishinaabée, douze enfants s'identifient à différentes créatures comme un renard, un chevreuil, un castor ou un orignal. Les illustrations douces et colorées représentent des enfants portant des masques d'animaux et sont accompagnées de courts textes poétiques.

 

In this introduction to the Anishinaabe tradition of totem animals, young children explain why they identify with different creatures such as a deer, beaver or moose. Delightful illustrations show the children wearing masks representing their chosen animal, while the few lines of text on each page work as a series of simple poems throughout the book.

In a brief author’s note, Danielle Daniel explains the importance of totem animals in Anishinaabe culture and how they can also act as animal guides for young children seeking to understand themselves and others.
