Brave Girls Virtual Storytime: The Water Walker

Calling all kids! Join the National Women’s History Museum’s Brave Girls Virtual Storytime and author Joanne Robertson as she reads her 2019 picture book, The Water Walker. Following the reading, Joanne will answer questions from the audience!

From The Ivy Bookshop:

The story of a determined Ojibwe Grandmother (Nokomis) Josephine Mandamin and her great love for Nibi (water).

Nokomis walks to raise awareness of our need to protect Nibi for future generations, and for all life on the planet. She, along with other women, men, and youth, have walked around all the Great Lakes from the four salt waters, or oceans, to Lake Superior. The walks are full of challenges, and by her example Josephine invites us all to take up our responsibility to protect our water, the giver of life, and to protect our planet for all generations.
