Hello friends! Greetings from our gallery bookstore!
Summer is at its height but fall will soon be upon us and we have big news!
Every Day is Pink Shirt Day, a book I illustrated with the help of graphic artist Nancy MacDonald, is at the printer’s as I write this! Written by Halifax teacher and guidance counsellor, Heather Topshee, it tells the story of Maya, a Grade 3 pupil attending school on Stand Up Against Bullying Day. Maya sees all the children wearing pink shirts to support anti-bullying behaviour but also sees children being unkind in the schoolyard. With the help of her guidance counsellor, Maya shows her schoolmates that simply wearing a pink t-shirt is not enough—we must choose to be kind every day.
The publishing date is September 21, 2019 and will retail at Chapters/Indigo and other fine booksellers in Nova Scotia for $19.95. Order from us, $25 includes shipping and tax.
This is a very important book that helps young children understand how they can help prevent bullying in very simple ways and I am so proud to have been a part of sharing that message!
