Happy Earth Day!

One of my favourite books to read on Earth Day is The Water Walker written and illustrated by Joanne Robertson.

It is a story about an Ojibwe grandmother (Nokomis) and her love for water (Nibi). She organizes people to walk from all four oceans and around the Great Lakes to Lake Superior. There are Ojibwe words throughout the story, which is an Indigenous language that is centred around the Great Lakes homeland of the Ojibwe people.

The story is inspired by the Mother Earth Water Walk, which you can read more about by clicking here.

What are some things you can do to protect our water and make sure it stays clean for ourselves and the future?
