In this introduction to the Anishinaabe tradition of totem animals, young children explain why they identify with different creatures such as a deer, beaver, or moose. Delightful illustrations show the children wearing masks representing their chosen animal, while the few lines of text on each page work as a series of simple poems throughout the book. In a brief author's note, Danielle Daniel explains the importance of totem animals in Anishinaabe culture and how they can also act as animal guides for young children seeking to understand themselves and others.

Review quote

"Sometimes I feel like a bear,
strong and confident.
I stand tall and growl
and protect those around me. Sometimes I feel like a turtle,
slow and quiet.
I retreat into my shell
and find peace and solitude." -- from the book
