Seven classic stories by renowned children’s author Robert Munsch have been translated into Mi’kmaq as part of a three-year project by Mi’kmaw Kina’matnewey. The translated titles are Thomas’ Snowsuit, Andrew’s Loose Tooth, Love You Forever, I Have to Go, Mud Puddle, A Promise is a Promise, and I’m So Embarrassed.
The books were unveiled on Monday, June 9 during the first day of classes at the newly constructed Membertou School.
A representative from almost every MK community was present to accept a set of the books to bring back to their communities. The full collection of Mi’kmaq Munsch books will be distributed to MK’s 12 communities and will be integrated into school curriculum in the fall.
The translated books will also be made available for purchase in the coming months. For more information, contact ac.unik@erialb or 902-567-0336.
