Carry Me, Mama – Monica Devine

Monica Devine tells the story of a mother and her child as the child begins to walk for herself. Set in the North, Katie has always ridden in the hood of her mother’s parka when traveling. When she gets too big for the hood and too heavy, her mother lets her know that she must now walk for herself. The story is well told and Pauline Paquin’s illustrations are lively and evocative. Thematically links to family, North, First Nations, Story writing- repetitions, metaphors, mothers, children.
