Book Synopsis



"Dream a little, Kulu, this world now sings a most beautiful song of you."

This beautiful bedtime poem, written by acclaimed Inuit throat singer Celina Kalluk, describes the gifts given to a newborn baby by all the animals of the Arctic.

Lyrically and tenderly told by a mother speaking to her own little Kulu; an Inuktitut term of endearment often bestowed upon babies and young children, this visually stunning book is infused with the traditional Inuit values of love and respect for the land and its animal inhabitants.

A perfect gift for new parents.



Review Quotes




"This picture book adaptation about a new child born in the Arctic succeeds in its new board book form. While the language is sophisticated and the text is longer than most found in board books, the lyrical quality will capture children's attention. The animated illustrations dominate each page and complement the text. This purchase should be considered to add diversity and elegance to board book collections." --School Library Journal

"Debut author Kalluk presents a series of warm affirmations for a newborn (the name "Kulu" is an Inuktitut term of endearment). Neonakis's artwork...offers a genuinely folklike sensibility and strong, dynamic compositions."--Publishers Weekly

"This is a terrific book for those who have a newborn in the house... And for those of us who just need a book that rights the world for us, that reminds us of that world in all its richness."--American Indians in Children's Literature (AICL)

"[A] lovely bedtime book . . . Young children will be captivated by the beauty of the Arctic world embracing little Kulu."--Quill and Quire
