Description

 

See below for English description.

Les bois d'Eustache ont commencé à bouger. Sa mère lui annonce qu'il va bientôt les perdre. Eustache s'inquiète, son panache fait partie de son identité. Peu à peu, il se fait à l'idée qu'il grandit et que ses bois vont tomber! Quand le grand jour arrive, Eustache réalise que grandir, c'est changer… pour le mieux!

Un album magnifiquement illustré qui permet d'aborder les changements, petits ou grands, qui surviennent lorsque l'enfant grandit.

 

One winter morning while playing with his animal friends, a young moose named Eustache notices his antlers are wiggly, and he runs home to tell his mother. Will he be able to find a way to stop his antlers from falling off? Or, if he just lets them go, would he find new ways to play?

In this charming picture book, author Louise Bradford has crafted a playful allegory for children about losing a first tooth. With Christine Battuz's amusing, exuberant art bringing Wade's story to life with sympathy as well as humour, this book makes an engaging and relatable read-aloud for story time. It provides terrific opportunities for discussions about how our bodies change as we grow up, what it feels like to go through these changes and the different ways we can celebrate the milestones.

Original title: Wade's Wiggly Antlers
