Be a good Ancestor with your thoughts. Thoughts become ideas. Ideas become actions. Actions become movements. Movements become change. Rooted in Indigenous teachings, this stunning picture book encourages readers of all ages to consider the ways in which they live in connection to the world around them and to think deeply about their behaviours.

Addressing environmental issues, animal welfare, self-esteem and self-respect, and the importance of community, the authors deliver a poignant and universal message in an accessible way: Be a good ancestor to the world around you. Thought-provoking stanzas offer a call to action for each one of us to consider how we affect future generations.

Every decision we make ripples out, and we can affect the world around us by thinking deeply about those decisions. (From Orca Book Publishers)
