Hakai Magazine recommends It’s Time for Berries! as one of “twelve new kids’ beach reads to inspire action and adventure.”
“In this Inuit picture book for children in elementary school, a pair of sisters learns traditional land uses from their ningiuq, or grandma. They fish, they dig for clams, and finally they pick berries, the girls’ favorite, all in tune with the seasons and under Ningiuq’s leadership. Through lively text peppered with Inuktitut words, and vivid illustrations of the smiling trio, readers are transported to the Arctic and Ningiuq’s welcoming home. It’s Time for Berries! is a sweet story about the hard work—and the tasty rewards—of living off the land.”
It’s Time for Berries! is written by Ceporah Mearns and Jeremy Debicki and illustrated by Tindur Peturs.
