New Ogopogo Book a Delight for ChildrenPosted by John Kirk on 15 March 2016, 11:38 am
Author Dorothy Hawes has crafted a delightful children’s book on Ogopogo, the denizen of Okanagan Lake.
It is profusely illustrated with beautiful paintings by artist Maggie Parr.
We strongly recommend this book as a way for children to understand the story of Ogopogo from a First Nations perspective.
