This traditional Native American tale is perfect for celebrating the abundance of berries in Quebec summers. It tells us how the berries originally grew.
This tale is a love story that you will enjoy reading to your little ones. This is the story of Napéo and Iskéo, a couple who lived a long, long time ago. After spending peaceful days occupied by hunting and gathering plants, now they are faced with a bad fate, Napéo can no longer find anything to hunt. An argument breaks out and Iskéo flees.
The Sun, to slow down Iskéo's flight, blows on the Earth and in front of Iskéo spring blueberries, raspberries and strawberries in profusion. The young woman is so impressed by the beauty of the berries that she slows down and her companion has time to come and join her. Of course, they reconcile by eating berries!
A beautiful story that stands out from the ordinary children's books and is distinguished by the beauty of its illustrations. To read… while eating field fruits!
For ages 4 and up.
