Illustrated with visually-appealing paintings, this acrostic poem celebrates the beauty and uniqueness of the Arctic from its heritage and landscape to its structures, people and wildlife. The book uses and explains a Inuktitut word for each letter of Inukshuk (I is for Inukshuk..., N is for Nanuk..., etc.). Wallace has cleverly hidden an inukshuk in every painting and includes a list of the different inukshuk types with an explanation of what each one symbolizes.

Recommended for ages 5 and up. ( )
