✏Island Kids Book Summary : This is a history of British Columbia’s 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 BC’s 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. Unlike history that has either been fictionalized or told from an adult’s perspective, the Courageous Kids series brings history to kids in their own words. Truly original, Kidmonton, Rocky Mountain Kids, and Island Kids strive to communicate the events and emotions of kids. Please visit for more information on the whole Courageous Kids series.

✏Those Snake Island Kids Book Summary : When Jake succeeds in persuading his family to embark on a sailing-camping holiday on a Tasmanian island, he is mostly interested in pirate fantasies and his home-built Optimist dinghy.

The children’s idealistic notions are challenged by several less-than-friendly visitors who introduce some serious concerns. Ultimately, after being forced to dig deep into their personal reserves, the treasures they all gain from their experiences are rather different from the ones Jake has set out to find.
