When Heaven Smiled On Our World

Something there is, to paraphrase Robert Frost, that yearns for a particular kind of Christmas — a Christmas of candlelight, a blazing fire, an aroma-rich meal, a whitespired church for services — and snow blanketing the world around.

When Heaven Smiled On Our World reminds us of why that may be so.

Buzz About Bees

Imagine a world without bees. Not only would it be less colourful - with fewer wildflowers and flowering plants — it would be less fruitful as well. A world without bees would mean a world where the food supply would be significantly diminished. Globally it is estimated that bees are responsible for 1/3 of our food supply.

Ahmek

This is the story of Ahmek, a young beaver, going about the business of living in his natural habitat. Through his eyes, we see a man, an artist painting the wilderness. Slowly, cautiously, Ahmek and the man establish a rapport, only to have it shattered when poachers destroy the beaver dam and threaten Ahmek's life.

Memo from Fitzhenry & Whiteside, Red Deer Press, Fifth House Publishers & Whitecap Books

 

To Teachers & Educators who are providing distant learning to classrooms in a virtual classroom setting

                Story-time or classroom read-aloud videos in which one of our books is read alound, and the book is displayed may be created and posted to closed education platforms such as Goodle Classroom, Schoology, Edmodo, and Discovery Education in order to replicate the read-aloud book experience that would otherwise be available to educators in the classroom

                Teachers planning to share a story time video by recording a video and uploading it to a YouTube channel, may do so as long as the video is inside a closed educational platform; the video must be designated as UNLISTED (not public) when uploading. Please do not host these videos on the educational platform or YouTube (UNLISTED) past September 30, 2020.

 

Booksellers and Librarians who wish to provide a story-time reading or other such similar entertainment to your library visitors may stream live, real time, on social media platforms  such as YouTube, Facebook Live, Twitter & Instagram. Please insure, however, that these read aloud events are not stored in the archive of whatever media is chosen. This should be done by immediately deleting the video from the social medium as soon as it has finished.

We would appreciate your help and cooperation by letting us know here at Fitzhenry & Whiteside whenever you plan to record such a live reading event.

Thank you and

Happy Reading!!!!
