Chuck in the City is the newly revised edition of a charming children's story about a young boy named Chuck who goes on an unaccompanied walk when he visits his Kookum (grandmother) in the city. This first visit to the city turns into an adventure. On his walk Chuck encounters barking dogs, kids on roller blades, and tall office towers. He finally realizes that he is lost and very hungry. Trying not to panic he manages to find his way back to his grandmother's condo. This is Jordan Wheeler's second book for children.
Where Did You Get Your Moccasins? is a wonderful picture book well suited for reading aloud to preschool and kindergarten children. The story focuses on a young boy who brings a pair of moccasins to school for show and tell. He explains step by step how his Kookum, his grandmother, made the moccasins. The sensitive black and white pencil drawings reflect the author's and illustrator's respect for the First Nation child in a multi-cultural, urban school setting.
