Picking up where Uumajut: Learn About Arctic Wildlife! left off, Uumajut, Volume Two will introduce the youngest readers to the diets and habitats of more arctic species including the Siksik, Ermine, Wolf, Muskox, Eider Duck, Ringed Seal, Harp Seal, and Walrus. They will also learn about traditional Inuit uses for these animals, from traditional food preparation to clothing and household uses. Uumajut, Volume Two is brought to vivid life by award-winning illustrator Romi Caron’s whimsical illustrations.
