Little Wolf, written by Teoni Spathelfer and illustrated by Natassia Davies, is about a girl who moves to Vancouver, British Columbia, after a family breakup. At first the city feels strange and alienating, but Little Wolf finds solace with animals and in nature. Little by little, she begins to assert her true self.

Indigenous creators Spathelfer and Davies have produced a gentle, sensitive book about personal resilience and finding strength through culture. If you’re looking for a strong, girl-led story for kids 6 to 9, Little Wolf is a great pick! I really enjoyed it and recommend it for teachers and librarians looking to build their Indigenous collections.
