My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I saw that this Inuit folktale book was available for request on NetGalley, I knew immediately that I wanted to read it. The artwork is gorgeous, and I love the topic.

This is a story that has longer text than some picture books, so it’s probably best for your slightly older children, more like ages 5-8, or for those younger kiddos who have a long attention span for reading.

There’s a lot of fantastic vocabulary, and the story uses many Inuit terms, which is very interesting. This story would be great for discussions with elementary school children, especially in the 1st-4th grade ranges. I also love the map at the beginning and the vocabulary section at the end. It could easily be turned into a short project or unit in the elementary grades.
