Review: The Legend of The Wolves of Gunflint Lake

The Legend Of The Wolves of Gunflint Lake
All Quotes Are From The Book.

The Legend Of The Wolves of Gunflint Lake is a delightful story that shares the powerful message about the importance of valuing your community, animals and nature.

"Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world." ~ Desmond Tutu

"So it was true with the people who lived a long, long time ago on Gunflint Lake. They were people of the land who cared for one another. Each person in the tribe valued and honored and knew their importance for the success of the community. From the chief, to the littlest baby, they instinctually knew that each was a thread in the web of life." ~ Lisa Sellman

Lisa Sellman takes children on a journey through the eyes of the native american elder storytellers who show the importance of passing down the torch from generation to generation by carrying on the powerful message of the harmonious lessons and connections between nature and man.

Lisa Sellman brilliantly includes life lessons from the heart that teaches the value and respect for all. Whether it be human, nature or animals. She shows how everything is intertwined and has it's own divine purpose. We love how Lisa chose to use the wolf character as the source to guide the children and teach them the wisdom of the universe and encourages them not to forget the ways of gratitude.

The illustrations by Chris Kraetz pulls off a believable portrayal of living life at Gunflint Lake amongst the wolves.

The illustrations are a bit rustic and rough, and a bit cartoonish. The content of the story is quite good, too bad about the illustrations.
