Arctic plants

A Walk on the Tundra 
by Rebecca Hainnu and Anna Ziegler
illustrated by Qin Leng

Inuujaq's friends are all asleep and she has nothing to do. So her grandmother, Silaaq, takes her along to gather qijuktaat (khee-yook-tat) for the cooking fire. As they walk across the tundra, Silaaq shows Inuujaq the many delicious plants and flowers that flavor Inuit meals.

A simple, informative introduction to arctic plants, with a lovely story as its background.

Includes a plant glossary, with photos, and a pronunciation guide to the many Inuktitut words and phrases.
