CA$35.00The purpose and challenge of this anniversary book of Grace Mennonite Church is to capture, in word and picture, the faithfulness of the past 50 years; to use that history to describe the richness of the present and look with real hope to the future as the vision of healing and hope gives direction to a world that so desperately needs to envision the reign of God in all domains of human experience. Celebrate the journey.
CA$19.95Teaching is an education! In this collection of stories, Dianne Miller invites us to join her as she recalls her educational journey, first as a student and then as a long-time educator. We ride on a bumpy school bus, ring the bell in the principal’s office, navigate delicately around a lovesick teen, and endure/enjoy adolescent shenanigans and wisecracks. Miller is both entertaining and introspective as she considers the personal, pedagogical and societal changes she experienced over many years as a teacher and administrator. Her love for her students, for her colleagues, and for the education profession itself is evident on every page.
CA$19.95Frustrated and disenchanted with farm life and marriage, Cherry Markowsky grabs her dog and heads toward a new beginning in the city of Saskatoon.

CA$16.95Confession: My name is Alison and I am a dance mom.
The first time I saw Jesse perform he was nine years old in a group tap number. When he appeared on stage, I remember what a thrill it was to see him up there, but also how cute they all were, how much fun they were having and how much they all obviously enjoyed being in the spotlight.
That was the moment Alison realized she was a dance mom. Her son Jesse's dance career would take him from a local dance school in Saskatoon--a small city in the middle of the Saskatchewan prairie--to Canada's RoyalWinnipeg Ballet School and from there to Germany, where he currently dances with the Stuttgarter Ballett. To parent a dancer to an elite level is a unique and challenging journey as well as an incredibly rewarding experience.
CA$19.95Every connection has its own story. Immigrants have come to Saskatchewan from Ukraine for more than a hundred years. Since Ukraine’s independence in 1991, there has been increasing awareness in Saskatchewan of the need to connect with Ukraine both politically and economically. And as time passes, there is an increasing awareness in all Canadians of Ukraine’s aspiration to become a fully independent and democratic country.
The intent of this book is to record some of the “connections” that have been made by Saskatchewan organizations and individuals with Ukraine, starting in the early 1970s. These connections have taken different forms over the years, but there has been a gradual shift from preserving Ukrainian culture and language to establishing a broader educational base—one that is mutually beneficial to both Saskatchewan and Ukraine.
CA$19.95It's hard to make friends when you're a monster! A group of young monsters must learn cooperation and tolerance to overcome their differences in order to survive a hostile world without adult guidance. Having escaped from a crashed train full of cages below the earth, the various critters slowly come to trust each other as they flee those who would enslave them, and battle or outwit those who want to halt their bid for freedom.
CA$19.95Each Crown corporation has its own story. Why are Crown corporations so important to the people of Saskatchewan? The province has a long history of creating Crown corporations; the first was created before Saskatchewan became a province in 1905. Since those early days, many Crown corporations have been established and almost as many have been sold, privatized or dissolved. In addition, a number of the Crowns began investing in outside enterprises located in the province, in other provinces in Canada, as well as in foreign countries. Many of these investments have been sold off, some at a profit, but many at a loss. And so Crown corporations have been the subject of much political debate over the years. It is this fascination that led to this book.
CA$14.95Sunday, June 30, 1912 was a very hot day in Regina, Saskatchewan. Late that afternoon, two ominous black clouds appeared on the southern horizon--then, suddenly, the funnel cloud of an awesome tornado!
