We celebrated Chinese New Year

Spring Festival, or Chinese New Year, is the most important festival for Chinese all over the world; February 8 marked the first day or 2016.  Unofficial statistics place the population of Chinese who reside in Yellowknife at around 200 people. For a small Chinese community like this, the celebration this year was particularly special.

Our gift book picks for Christmas 2015

The Polar Bear Son, by Lydia Dabcovich
The Polar Bear Son is an Inuit tale retold and illustrated by Lydia Dabcovich.  It tells the story of an old Inuit woman who adopts an orphan polar bear that provides food for her as it grows up. The story is about motherly love towards an adopted child. I like this book so much I made a Storysack for the NWT Literacy Council.

Family fun for busy college students

During the school year we usually spend a couple of evenings a month with students who attend Aurora College in Yellowknife and their families.

Students are busy people, especially if they have children.  It can be difficult for them to take their children to various events in town, so we bring crafts and fun times to the families through the Aurora College’s Family Night on Campus.
