Humour is not only the best medicine; it is also an exceptionally useful teaching tool.
So often, it is through humour that the big lessons in life are learned—about responsibility, honour, hard work, and respect. Cree people are known for their wit, so the tales in Woods Cree Stories are filled with humour. The book includes nine stories—including Boys Get Lost, Foolishness, and Animals Become Friends—and a Woods Cree-English glossary..
All the stories are presented in Cree syllabics, standard roman orthography, and English translation and can be enjoyed by those new to the language and more advanced learners.
