We Love You as Much as the Fox Loves Its Tail

Sharing love as deep as the beluga dives and as warm as the shaggy hair of the muskox, this poem envelopes a new baby in the embrace of their new home in all its forms—the Arctic landscape and the welcoming arms of family.

Praise:

[A] book guided by love and celebration.”—Quill & Quire

“Campeau skillfully draws together modern imagery (the baby’s bounce chair will feel familiar to so many parents) with a distinctly Arctic landscape. The result is a visual story that positions Inuit culture as present-day and vibrant; awesome.”—Canadian Review of Materials

“If you know anyone having a baby or just having had a baby, We Love You As Much As the Fox Loves Its Tail would be a lovely gift to the family. It evokes the abundance of love and the closeness of family, and, no matter if the family lives in an urban landscape, in a prairie rural community, or a far northern region, We Love You As Much As the Fox Loves Its Tail will evince the joy of a new babe from its pages.”—CanLit for Little Canadians
