When I first picked up this book, I was just drawn to the illustrations at first. But once I read the book, I feel in love with the hidden meaning lessons behind it all. This book teaches about wisdom, values and interacting with different people. I highly recommend this book to middle grades and educators, this book has many important values to learn from. ( )

We are Water Protectors, written by Carole Lindstrom and illustrated by Michaela Goade. This is a beautiful book captured with all sorts of colors that demonstrate the beauty of nature to young adolescents. This book focuses on the connections, values and wisdom of Indigenous people as it talks about mother nature and earth. I recommend reading this book to middle schoolers as it talks about different cultures. It is a Caldecott Medal award winner. ( )

The illustrations in this are gorgeous. It is not a wonder why it was chosen for the Caldecott award. ( )

This book is beautifully written and holds a great amount of respect to indigenous people. Books should be written about indigenous people showing respect and honoring them. This story talks about the beauty of earth and the importance of celebrating other cultures.
This would be great to read in the class to celebrate and honor the indigenous people. They hold beauty and they should be celebrated.

This book holds such a powerful story because it is about the Indigenous people and how much story they have. The book holds the values, and deep connections to earth that Indigenous people have and it is a great story to honor and celebrate their lives. The story is an easy read but the content is deep so I would gear it towards uppers to have more discussions about it. I would use it to show the beauty and celebration of other cultures. ( )
