|This is a history of British Columbias island children, told in their voices, from their perspectives. Composed of twenty-two stories, Island Kids is a snapshot of a period and place in time. The topics range from quintessentially coastal experiences, like a day at the beach, to stories that deal with serious issues, such as BCs history of residential schools, but they all remain true to the experience of the children telling the story. At the end of each chapter is a section called What do we know for sure? that gives the reader greater depth and context. The stories are written in a dynamic and authentic voice and are aimed at readers aged eight to twelve.|
