CanLit for Little Canadians Reviews The Woman and Her Bear Cub

CanLit for Little Canadians reviews The Woman and Her Bear Cub, adapted and retold by Jaypeetee Arnakak, and illustrated by Dayna B. Griffiths.

“By creating art that appears stark, with a restrained palette of blue, white, and grey-brown, Dayna B. Griffiths makes the Arctic landscape of blue sky and white snow dotted with an occasional qarmaq (dwelling) very powerful. . . . Here, a polar bear and an Arctic landscape may make this story unique, but its premise is grounded in the authenticity of compassion for those in need and dictated only by the one most affected. It is a lesson in selflessness and benevolence and a true reflection of the graciousness of Inuit values.”
