Inuit culture

Frozen Land
by Jan Reynolds

Kenalogak's father is hunting caribou. While she and her family wait for him, she fishes and plays with her brother, while her mother sews parkas and boots. When her father returns, she helps him build an igloo. Kenalogak's day concludes with feasting and singing.

The book's simple text and bright photographs illuminate the traditional ways of the Inuit, which are in danger of being forgotten.
