Here it is, with one panel for each letter. Congratulations to both Myrna and the quilter.
Myrna Guymer loves to do school readings with her book The Canadian Shield Alphabet. Here she is at a reading in Melville in spring 2011.
Myrna says “The costume is my voyageur shirt and Metis sash. I also wear beaded moccasins. I take samples from nature: birch bark and items made from bark; roots, spruce gum, deer moss, and many different rock samples, core samples, and I often give each child a chunk of rock with sparkles – pyrite – that they think might be gold (they love it).
The award is presented annually by the Canadian Science Writers’ Association. Previous winners include Robert Bateman and David Suzuki.
A beautifully illustrated and informative children’s picture book, The Canadian Shield Alphabet is chock full of interesting and little-known facts that highlight, letter by letter, the vast regions of the Canadian Shield–a 4.8 million square mile area (almost half of Canada!)–and the people who live there.
Winner of the 2008 Canadian Science Writers Association Science in Society Journalism Award in the Children’s Book category.
