Books and Learning Guides

Our Notes on the Spirit Bear Book Series:

The Caring Society is proud to publish an award-winning picture book series written by Order of Canada recipient Cindy Blackstock (Gitxan Nation) and illustrated by Spotted Fawn Productions, led by Amanda Strong (Michif)! Every book is based on true events in relation to reconciliation education and it teaches all children and youth that, "just because you're small, doesn't mean you can't stand tall!" 

Free digital copies of the books are available for free on our website to download. We also have accompanying book learning guides for educators and community membears! Click on the images below to learn more! 

The books are also available to read in French and in some First Nations languages!
