The Girl and the Wolf
A beautiful picture book and an empowering Indigenous twist on a classic wolf tale!
While picking berries with her mother, a little girl wanders too far into the woods. When she realizes she is lost, she begins to panic. A large grey wolf makes a sudden appearance between some distant trees. Using his sense of smell, he determines where she came from and decides to help her. Through a series of questions from the wolf, the little girl realizes she had the knowledge and skill to navigate herself... she just needed to remember that those abilities were there all along.
