Description

Giizis—the sun—rises. What’s hiding in the trees?

It’s a Mitig! guides young readers through the forest while introducing them to Ojibwe words for nature. From sunup to sundown, encounter an amik playing with sticks and swimming in the river, a prickly gaag hiding in the bushes and a big, bark-covered mitig.

Featuring vibrant and playful artwork, an illustrated Ojibwe-to-English glossary and a simple introduction to the double-vowel pronunciation system, plus accompanying online recordings, It’s a Mitig! is one of the first books of its kind. It was created for young children and their families with the heartfelt desire to spark a lifelong interest in learning language.

Editorial Review

This is more than a treasure, It's a Migig is a song and a dance for the world in how fun it is to learn Anishinaabe from mentor and visionary Bridget George.
I am completely charmed hoping this is the first in a series we can all enjoy together. Written with such love and tenderness, this is a gift for the world. Bravo and mahsi cho, Bridget George.

— Richard Van Camp, author of Welcome Song for Baby and Little You
