Sweetest Kulu [hc]
Written by Celina Kalluk, born and raised in Resolute Bay, Nunavut, & illustrated by Alexandria Neonakis, originally of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia
Dream a little, Kulu, this world now sings a most beautiful song of you.
This beautiful bedtime poem, written by acclaimed Inuit throat singer Celina Kalluk, describes the gifts given to a newborn baby by all the animals of the Arctic.
Lyrically and tenderly told by a mother speaking to her own little Kulu; an Inuktitut term of endearment often bestowed upon babies and young children, this visually stunning book is infused with the traditional Inuit values of love and respect for the land and its animal inhabitants.
A perfect gift for new parents. 36 pages
"Set in the world of the first peoples of the Arctic, the book hints at the idea of treating the Earth, its plants, and animals as a single living entity and suggests that a family's wishes for its children gain power from being spoken out loud." -Publishers Weekly (Baby to Age 3)
