For Every Child: The UN Convention on
the Rights of the Child in Words and
Pictures
Author: Castle, Caroline
Annotation
(CORE) In the foreword, Desmond Tutu reminds us
that all children have the right to be happy, to be
healthy, to learn, and to find security in adults that
they can trust. Many children in the world do not have
these rights, either due to war, famine, training as child
soldiers, or as refugees fleeing their homes. Fourteen
rights are highlighted in the book with an illustration
by an international artist.

Gabriel Dumont
Author: Woodcock, George
Annotation
(CORE, SK, FNMI) Gabriel Dumont was born in 1837 to
mixed parentage. Dumont lived the way of the Métis,
moving throughout the west and hunting buffalo.
When he became head of the buffalo hunt, the buffalo
herds were dwindling. Dumont called upon Louis Riel
to speak on behalf of the Métis. After being ignored by
the federal government, the Métis took up arms and
were eventually defeated. Dumont fled to the United
States where he became part of the Buffalo Bill’s Wild
West show. In 1893, Gabriel returned to Batoche and
died in 1906.
