Migisi loves his Gookom. Can he find the perfect gift to show her how much?

The Just Right Gift is one book in The Seven Teachings Stories series. The Seven Teachings of the Anishinaabe—love, wisdom, humility, courage, respect, honesty, and truth—are revealed in seven stories for children. Set in urban landscapes, Indigenous children tell familiar stories about home, school, and community.

Great ideas for using this book in your classroom can be found in the Teacher’s Guide for The Seven Teachings Stories.
