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 more 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 [...]

4.5I 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, espe [...]

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 school."I would have liked a little more detail. Where does Amik live, for example [...]

The residency schools are a dark mark left on a he indigenous peoples of Canada who survived them. But that isn't quite what this picture book is about and Amik only knows that he loves his school. When he discovers that his grandfather did not like his school, he feels he has to share how different schools are now. He 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 [...]

In the nineteenth century, the Canadian Government decided it would be best to assimilate the indigenous peoples of Canada and the best way to go about it would be if they became Christian and spoke English or French. This was done by way of compulsory residential schools where indigenous children spent up to ten months an year, barely saw their families, and would be punished if 'caught' practising their customs. All this was done in the hope that these students would teach this lifestyle to th [...]
