(Squirrel + Skunk = Skrunk )
Sammy’s first day at a new school presents unexpected challenges; not everyone wants to be friends with someone who looks different. Things change when Sammy meets Marcel the Métis and learns that being of mixed ancestry is something to be cherished and celebrated. The Story of Sammy the Skrunk is an endearing tale that celebrates diversity and gives special attention to the Indigenous peoples of Canada. It is sure to resonate with any child who has experienced the pain of not fitting in and teaches us to take pride in who we are regardless of our differences. Sammy’s adventure reveals that the differences we often perceive as our flaws are actually our unique strengths. This is a book to share with all children, to help them recognize that each one of us is unique, valuable and worthy of celebration.
