This is a touching little book about the importance of noticing the world. Charlie’s brother and sister call him “Turtle” because he’s always stopping to look at something interesting instead of keeping up with them.

Available in paperback only.  From Karin Clark; stories of Salish, Kwakwaka'wakw, Nuu Chah Nulth First Nations

A collaborative effort between the Victoria Native Friendship Centre and the First Nations Division of the Greater Victoria School District, these little books were written in consultation with First Nations elders, students, parents, and Native advisors in the school district. As a result, these stories of Salish, Kwakwaka'wakw, and Nuu Chah Nulth peoples, published in 1994 and beautifully illustrated with black-and-white line drawings, demonstrate the traditional value of inclusion.

Wait for Me!

This is a touching little book about the importance of noticing the world. Charlie’s brother and sister call him “Turtle” because he’s always stopping to look at something interesting instead of keeping up with them. Charlie is intensely interested in everything he sees and wants to share his interest with them, but they are impatient, in a hurry. While Granny knows Charlie’s ways and draws him out, Grandpa draws a lesson from the conversation, confirming Charlie’s perspective, and the sibs come to admire him.
