Product Description

Fiddle Dancer tells the tale of a young Métis boy, Nolin, and his growing awareness of his Métis heritage and identity while his "Mooshoom" or grandfather, teaches hime to dance. Authors Wilfred Burton and Anne Patton masterfully weave a childhood story rich in Métis culture and language. This delightful story captures the importance of Elders as role models, a child's apprehension at learning new things, and the special bond between grandparents and children. Sherry Farrell Racette provides many beautiful illustrations for the book. Awards: Nominated-2007 Regina Book Award, Children's Literature Award, and First Book Award, Saskatchewan Book Awards Nominated-2007 Children's Book of the Year, Ânskohk Aboriginal Literature Festival Nominated-2009 Shining Willow Award, The Willow Awards

I loved this book as it really shows the Métis culture and for the fast that it shows how it is passed from generation to generation. I appreciated the fact that the Grand-Pa talk about learning it from the time he was in his mother's womb and the fact that the little boy learned by standing on his Grand-Pa's feet really touched me. THe illustrations are beautiful and you get a feeling that you are at that Métis gathering with them. I LOVE THIS BOOK.
