Deborah Delaronde uses her unique gift for writing and the insights of her Métis heart to gift us with this story of Emma. It is a heart-warming story that uncovers bit by bit how Emma realizes and integrates the meaning of King Day's into her young life. This book gives a wonderful insight into our Métis culture.- Joe McLellan, author of The Nanabosho SeriesCareful, spare sentences, paired with smartly detailed, almost cinematic drawings, gentle us through Emma's experience of the Kings' Day, the Métis traditional celebration of The Epiphany. The young woman's growing understanding --her own epiphany-- of the customs of give and take between the adults of her family and community, and her own gifting, make this a lovely story about a sweet step in a girl's growing up. - Daniel David Moses, author of A Small Essay on the Largeness of Light and Other PoemsEmma's Gift is an important story about a Métis community's resourcefulness, industry, and about the way its members show appreciation for the work and kindness of others. This vibrant, beautiful work emphasizes values about kinship and friendship for members of any community. I highly recommend it.- Paul DePasquale, University of Winnipeg
