Selected as an "Our Choice" book by The Canadian Children's Book Centre

Artist Hazel Litgus takes us back to the simpler times in Where the Meadowlark Sang, her beautifully illustrated book about growing up on a prairie farm.

Hazel's delightful paintings and drawings, accompanied by her charming stories of rural life, bring to life the most cherished memories of her childhood. Written simply and from the heart, this is a book for children of all ages.

Where the Meadowlark Sang includes Hazel's accounts of harvest and hard work, of domestic chores and school days. But life on the farm wasn't all work.

Hazel also remembers the wondrous prairie landscape that was her playground, the games and pastimes that the children shared, and the important events that brought the community together in celebration. This book is an affectionate record of a vanishing way of life.

A Teacher's Guide is available from the publisher's web site. Go to www.fitzhenry.ca and click on Teacher's Guides.

About the Author:

Hazel Litzgus is a Fifth House Books author.

Review:


"In her use of bright colours and carefully detailed drawings, Litzgus creates illustrations that are reminiscent of those of William Kurelek. Drawn from the artist's memories, each of her 64 small stories is written in a simple, narrative style, unadorned with excess description. The accompanying drawings and paintings are done in a folk art style, with attention to detail overriding more formal design qualities. Such a style lends itself admirably to this record of a country childhood.

What will make this memoir a valuable classroom book is a teacher's guide (which can be downloaded from the publisher's web site). The guide includes excellent suggestions for pre-reading and post reading activities, all of which are easily adaptable to different levels of knowledge and skill. The activities integrate the language arts skills with other curriculum areas such as art, drama, science and social studies. With the guide in hand, Where the Meadowlark Sang should prove an excellent resource for teachers who include a unit on the prairies in their social studies curriculum.
Recommended"
