Available in paperback only.  Tina Umpherville (Cree/Métis), The Spring Celebration. 1995, color illustrations by Christie Rice.

Narrated by a child named Iskotew (the Cree word for “little fire” because of her fiery red hair), this is a story of life in a small village in northern Manitoba, “where the winters are long and bitterly cold.” As the days get longer and warmer, Iskotew and the other children of Brochet look forward to the spring celebration, when they can play with all their friends on this beautiful warm Spring Sunday. Rice’s muted watercolor paintings suit this gentle little story perfectly.
