Format: Hardcover
Excellent book for the classroom! I used this book during my teaching practicum for a Social Studies/ Art activity. A great story about a young child's love for her Dad and brothers which helps to bring them home safely. While the theme transcends cultures, the book also contains a wealth of information on Inuit culture. A great way to open discussion or to close a SS unit. Beautiful illustrations as well!

We're not alone July 21 2005
By Maria G. - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is the story of the origins of the Inuksuit, the stone people, that are very characteristic of the Inuit culture, as imagined by the author. It is a story of a little girl using her stone people to guide her father and brothers back home in a snowstorm. It is an introduction to the Inuit culture and beliefs. But I also take it as a very gentle reminder to all who read this book that we are just a small part of this world and we should appreciate what is available to us by living simple lives and using the gifts of this world wisely so that the generations to follow will also be able to use these wonderful resources. By gently reinforcing such positive ideas in our children's minds we can ensure a good future for all. The illustrations very effetctively portray the landscape and lifestyle of the Inuit people, they will draw the children's attention to this story and make it the more momorable. I commend Mike Ulmer and Melanie Rose for a job very well done.

By the way, the kids and I are planning to build an Inuksuk as our own reminder of what truly matters.

This was a gift for my daughter who was doing the Inuit culture with her class. They all found this book just what was needed to bring to life lessons about the Inuksuk.
