Uumajut: Learn About Arctic Wildlife!

This beautifully illustrated book takes readers from the tundra to the sea and ice, teaching children about a wide variety of Arctic animals. This rare look at the Canadian North showcases a fascinating ecosystem that we often forget is a large part of our country. Written in both English and Inuktitut.
