The poem, inside the pages of this beautifully illustrated book, tells how a young Anishinaabemowin girl and her grandmother know the arrival of each season by the signs in nature. As the pair move through the seasons, they gather food and observe the animals. The author was inspired by her childhood memories of time spent with Knowledge Keepers, observing and living in relationship with the natural world.
The book's English text is accompanied by the words in the Anishinaabemowin language.
