The First Day: A Story of Courage

By Katherena Vermette

“Makwa has to go to a new school … and he doesn’t want to go. How will he face his first day? The First Day is one book in The Seven Teachings Stories series. The Seven Teachings of the Anishinaabe-love, wisdom, humility, courage, respect, honesty, and truth-are revealed in these seven stories for children. Set in an urban landscape with Indigenous children as the central characters, these stories about home and family will look familiar to all young readers.”

A pronunciation guide for the Anishnaabemowin words can be found at the back of the book
