Kulu is an Inuktitut term of endearment. This is a perfect bedtime story for small children. The illustrations are bold, but soft of the cherub-like baby and the gifts of the animals and elements lull you into the Arctic world of a newborn. This is a feel-good book for any age!

CC: Great vocabulary to cover like adoration, empowerment, spontaneity, Arctic animal study.

An Inuit mother lulls her baby to sleep with a poem of how all the animals of the arctic come to bring the baby gifts of traditional Inuit values."Kulu [is] an Inuktitut term of endearment often bestowed upon babies and young children.”

This is a very sweet bedtime story for babies. ( )
