Going to Nanoose Bay
by Lorraine Shaw

This book is set in Nanoose Bay on beautiful Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. The author’s granddaughter, “Pointing Iris,” was its inspiration. She tells the story of all the things she sees in Nanoose Bay.

The book is set in the summer, from sunrise to moonrise. You will have fun trying to find Iris and all that she sees by the ocean. The story is full of repetition, and can even be sung. It is great for young children up to age seven.

Lorraine Shaw has a diploma in early childhood education and has had many years of experience teaching preschool, overseeing playgroups, and working with parents. Now retired, she lives with her husband at a seaside home in Nanoose Bay, where she enjoys doing art. She also enjoys kayaking, biking, and volunteering in her community.

This book reflects the author’s passion for teaching young children, art, music, and the sea. She has two married daughters and two young granddaughters who love to visit. The pictures are hand drawn by Lorraine and finished in watercolour by her husband, David. She has appreciated all the help and encouragement from her family and friends.
