Askî and Friends: Help Me Tell My Story
These digital storybooks were developed as part of the Help Me Tell My Story early childhood oral language assessment. The assessment is unique in many ways and it is grounded in First Nations and Métis holistic perspectives on learning. All of the stories incorporate traditional beliefs and perspectives and are available in five languages: Cree, Dene, Michif, English and French. The four storybooks focus on Askî, his three friends Nipi, Kon and Tate and their lives around the pond. The stories introduce Turtle Island and Mother Earth - two concepts that are central in the First Nations worldview. The stories were developed to be used in the classroom and in the home to help improve early childhood language skills. These stories are available for interactive tablets and can be downloaded from Google Play (Android) or the AppStore (iPad).

Footprints in the Snow
Tired of the stereotypes about wolves in literature, Mr. Nice Wolf attempts to correct them by writing a positive story about wolves. The animals he encounters do not trust Mr. Nice Wolf and when his natural carnivorous nature surfaces, he almost ruins his story. The surprise, open-ended culmination can generate discussion and lead to many independent story-telling opportunities. The book follows a narrative episodic pattern and the text is interesting as it flows in waves across the page and is periodically emphasized with big, bold letters. The colour drawings provide information about animal habitats. The wolf lives in a house with furniture and dresses with a hat, scarf and cane. The other animals tend to be more natural.

Children in families who follow nontraditional gender roles are often the target of put-downs by their peers. In this documentary, young Canadian children, ages 5 to 12, discuss the problems they face and make it very clear that educators, parents, and other children need to act positively to make schools safe and welcoming places. As the Canadian Human Rights Commission indicates, "The effect of homophobia can be devastating." While this video shows the effects of homophobia, it also illustrates the loving and caring families that support these children.
The program won the Itinerant - National Council on Family Relations Award in 2002 and the 2003 Bronze Plaque Award at the International Film and Video Festival.
