Oolichan Moon (Sisters Learn Foods of the Elders)

We rated this book:


As two sisters grow up, their family realizes it’s time to teach them all about their traditions and why they are so important. One thing their family values is the how their food is sacred. One of their most sacred food is the oolichan fish. This is no ordinary fish; not only can it be used for food, there are also many uses for its oil. The sisters seem to enjoy the time with their elders as they learn all about their heritage.

The illustrations in this book are so unique and truly incredible. The text has a nice rhythm. I enjoyed reading this book and learning about the traditions of others. I really liked learning about why the oolichan fish is so important to them.
