Arctic fauna

Uumajut: Learn About Arctic Wildlife

A brightly coloured picture book that introduces children to arctic wildlife. Divided into two sections - animals of the tundra and animals of the sea and ice - the book provides interesting facts about each animal and its importance to the people who live there. 

The tundra animals are the lemming, the barren-ground caribou, the Peary caribou, the arctic fox, and the wolverine. The sea animals are amphipods, the arctic char, the bearded seal, the beluga, and the bowhead whale.
