This is a lovely book! Timeless and universal in its exploration of the unconditional love a mother has for her child. The text is rich with details characteristic of arctic culture with are richly represented in the illustrations as well. I love everything about the stunning illustrations from the beautiful patterns on the dresses to the gentle way the mother’s body seems always to be curving around her precious child. This book makes a terrific baby gift, especially for a baby girl!

This is a classic tale of the unconditional love of a parent for a child. The illustrations by Barbara Lavallee are unique and memorable, and Barbara M. Joosse’s story introduces readers to authentic aspects of Inuit culture by including details like ptarmigan eggs and mukluks.
