    This is a good simple introduction to the idea of the residency schools and should probably be followed up with something that is a little detailed The history of the Residential Schools is a dark mark on Canadian History but it needs to be told The youth of today need to know that this happened and our government needs to continue to work toward reconciliation with the Native Canadians Amik loves school and shares this with his grandfather When he discovers that his grandfather did not like his school he asks why Grandfather tells him very briefly about the residential school he lived in He does not give a lot of detail about the horrors that many children experienced while at residential schools Amik comes up with an idea to share how different his school is from the one his grandfather went to He invites him to spend time with him at school and shows how the language of his people are taught at the school and his heritage is now respected They even smudge the room every morning just as they do at home His grandfather is happy that this school is not like the one he endured The illustrations are well done and very respectful to the cultureThis is one of seven books that teach about the Seven Teachings of the Anishinaabe—love wisdom humility courage respect honesty and truth I am looking forward to reading the other six in this series The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley

    45I really liked this book and its anti bias theme I appreciate the fact that I will be able to add another culture to my classroom that is not the usual per say I will say I was confused about if the name Moshoom was the actual name of the person or if it stood for something? In the back of the book is says it was Amiks grandfather in a way I also would have liked if it had said what smudging is because I personally dont know and if a child were to ask I would love to have the answer especially if there is a child in my class that comes from the culture I feel like it would make them feel comfortableIt will be in my future classroom

    This is my first time reading any of Katherena Vermette's Seven Teachings stories although I have read a little of her other work before but I definitely hope to grab the remainder of the series from the libraryThis book is of an easy reader the kind that you might find levelled by some publishers than a picture book I had only seen it online not in person until I checked it out and I had thought it was a picture book It is an incredibly sweet story about a boy who loves school and his grandfather who attended a residential school The story is touching but believable The introduction to residential schools is gentle and not detailed but doesn't try to conceal truths It makes for a good introduction to residential schools especially for children who might be learning in the near future The illustrations are subtle and sweetI definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a way to introduce a difficult topic to a younger audience I look forward to reading the remainder of Katherena Vermette's Seven Teachings series

    Amik Loves School is a sweet and thoughtful introduction to the Seven Teachings of the Anishinaabe—love wisdom humility courage respect honesty and truth The story contrasted nicely the respectful way in which the Anishinaabe culture and language is now being treated in the local school as compared to the negative and sometimes tragic school experience Amik's grandfather had to endure in a residential schoolI would have liked a little detail Where does Amik live for example? A map would be nice What is smudging? What is a residential school and why did Moshoom have to go there? Also I had to read the back of the book to know that Moshoom means grandfather A few details would be helpful to give children a meaningful introduction into the Anishinaabe culture and history I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
