Native Northwest is proud to release ANIMAL WORLD, its 17th book for children. Thank you Bella Bella artist Ben Houstie for sharing your art and culture. This board book features 44 animals, some are rarely depicted such as ermines and foxes.
Ben's comments on the book: "My art is how I speak the language of my people. My language, Heiltsuk, was taken away from me during my years at Residential School. The art in this book is my way of communicating where I come from and who I am. I love this book as it offers tools for children to learn."
Partial proceeds from the sale of this book support Aboriginal early childhood development.
