Discovering Words

Neepin Auger. Rocky Mountain (Heritage Group, dist.), $12 (28p) ISBN 978-1-927330-95-1
Cree artist Auger teaches readers 26 English, French, and Cree words for animals and objects for each letter of the alphabet. Vivid paintings on canvas in a bright palette offer elementally simple visuals: three robin’s-egg blue eggs (oeufs in French, wâwa in Cree) sit in a brown nest resting on the ground, while the opposing page displays two chartreuse “fish poisson kinosêw” with purple stripes. Pronunciations are not included, requiring some adult familiarity with the French and Cree words. Simultaneously available: Discovering Numbers. All ages. (Oct.)
