In My Anaana's Amautik
Nadia Sammurtok, illustrated by Lenny Lishchenko
Nadia Sammurtok lovingly invites the reader into the amautik — the pouch in the back of a mother's parka used to carry a child — to experience everything through the eyes of the baby nestled inside, from the cloudlike softness of the pouch to the glistening sound of Anaana's laughter. Sweet and soothing, this book offers a unique perspective that will charm readers of all ages. (From Inhabit Media)
