Make a peaceful protest
Put pollution to rest
Make the world a better place
A calm and graceful human race
If I could change one thing
I’d make the world a better place
A giant peaceful ring
I’d make this mystery a better case

We are Water Protectors
Written by Carole Lindstrom
Illustrated by Michaela Goade
Inspired by the many Indigenous-led movements across North America, We Are Water Protectors issues an urgent rallying cry to safeguard the Earth’s water from harm and corruption—a bold and lyrical picture book written by Carole Lindstrom and vibrantly illustrated by Michaela Goade.
Water is the first medicine.
It affects and connects us all . . .
When a black snake threatens to destroy the Earth
And poison her people’s water, one young water protector
Takes a stand to defend Earth’s most sacred resource.
Week 3 – Katrina Kope

Painting patterns, wheeling wagons, being mermaids, riding dragons… From the award-winning creators of The Underwater Fancy-Dress Parade and Under the Love Umbrella comes this joyful ode to all the unique and wonderful qualities that make children who they are.
