I Can See You and Tanna’s Lemming Recommended by Book Riot

Two Inhabit Media books have been listed on Book Riot‘s “10 New Children’s Books by Native American and Indigenous Authors to Read for Native American Heritage Month.”

I Can See You, by Rosemarie Avrana Meyok, and illustrated by Michelle Simpson:
“This sweet board book celebrates the love between a mother and her child using the five senses. From playing peek-a-boo to snuggles and kisses, the mothers and babies in this board book relish in the love they have for one another. The adorable illustrations contain aspects of Inuit culture. This would make a perfect gift for new mothers.”

Tanna’s Lemming, by Rachel and Sean Qitsualik-Tinsley, and illustrated by Tamara Campeau:
“This sweet picture book tells a nuanced story about what it means to care for nature. Tanna is collecting lemmings for a researcher to study when she finds a tiny one under a rock. Instead of giving the lemming to the researcher, she keeps this one as a pet. Tanna knows that she understands how to treat the lemming far better than any outsider researcher could. She calls the lemming Fluffi, and at first, Fluffi fits in perfectly in Tanna’s home. But when Fluffi eats her mother’s fabric, Tanna begins to realize a more complicated truth — that sometimes to truly care for a living thing means setting it free. This follow-up to Tanna’s Owl is based on the author’s experiences growing up in the Artic.”
