    1. Sisters Angnakuluk Friesen and Ippiksaut Friesen give us a glimpse into growing up in an Inuit community in Nunavut. I truly believe that one way we can work towards a more peaceful world is to learn more about other cultures - this book helps young children connect with people they may never meet - but who have the same love of family they have.


    2. Sisters Arnakuluk Vuriisan and Angnakuluk Friesen make *home* the operative word for an Arctic hometown. The long dark days and nights of an Arctic winter seem ever so warm with family and friends gathered together. The northern lights provide not just illumination but also stunning entertainment.This book is bilingual, written in Inuktutit syllabics and English. The Inuktitut is also romanized beneath so a non-Inuktuit reader can also get a feel for the rhythm of the language. This is an excell [...]


    3. Kirkus: "The sister collaborators work in harmony. Angnakuluk Friesen's poetic text is fluid and evocative, and Ippiksaut Friesen's illustrations, painted with watercolor and acrylic "on elephant poo paper," then composited digitally, are lovely works of folk art.

    5. I thought this book had great potential to introduce young readers to another culture and way of life, but this book was short on details.


    6. Not a complicated book. Ideal for early readers. Lovely images that can be used to prompt discussions about what’s different in the reader’s hometown to a town in Nunavut.
