Phyllis’s orange shirt

2019by Phyllis Webstad and Brock Nicol

"A short rhyming story for readers about Phyllis Webstad’s experience attending residential school, the story behind Orange Shirt day. When Phyllis Webstad (nee Jack) turned six, she went to residential school for the first time. On her first day at school, she wore a shiny orange shirt that her granny had bought for her, but when she got to the school, it was taken away from her and never returned. This is the true story of Phyllis and her orange shirt. It is also the story of Orange Shirt Day (an important day of remembrance for Indigenous people and all Canadians)." -- publisher
