Editorial Review

"A full-color experience of the seasons in Canada's north."
Kirkus Reviews

"The somewhat Yoda-esque quality of Bentley's poetry appropriately slows the pace of the book's reading so that youngsters can absorb some of the details of Bartram's artwork. The summer pages are filled with lush greens punctuated by the colours of various flowers, birds and insects before giving way to fall's more muted palette. Colourwise, Winter North is a contrast of crisp dark nights and day's snow-blinding whiteness that are both eventually conquered by the warmth oranges of the sun's spring return. . . In terms of both its text and illustrations, Summer North Coming is definitely a book to return to and linger over. Bentley's words are rich in their sparseness, and Bartram's illustrations are full of details to be discovered during subsequent readings.
Highly Recommended"
CM Magazine

"This picture book describes northern Canada's seasons and refreshingly depicts non-stereotypical Inuit characters. If you've been thinking about how to honor #WeNeedDiverseBooks, then this one fits the bill.
