Wolastoqi woman releases first children’s book, plans for Indigenous-language versions

“It took Gail Francis of Negotkuk (Tobique First Nation) years to turn an idea into her first children’s book.

But all that work comes to fruition when she releases Moonbeam on Monday.

Moonbeam is a culturally based children’s book about how a pre-contact Indigenous family names their child. The character Moonbeam is told the story of her naming while the family waits for another newborn baby in the village to be named.”
