The illustrated pages are stunningly beautiful. I flipped through them over and over. The story is very sweet although the text was sometimes a bit awkward. Don't let that stop you from trying out this lovely tale an Inuit mother shares with her child, about the natural world around them.

In this charming picture book, an unnamed mother speaks lovingly to her newborn. She tells him about the day he was born, and how all of the Arctic came to greet him. As they visit, the animals, and the land itself, endows little Kulu with a set of qualities; tenderness from Arctic Char, patience and a sense of direction from Caribou... each spread features a different entity and their gift. This sense of love and well-wishing is conveyed through both word and art. All the illustrations have soft, coloured linework, designs that emphasize the gentle, cuddly side of the animals and baby, and a beautiful dreamlike palette. Sweetest Kulu is a heartfelt lullaby, looks phenomenal, and, it nurtures the Inuit value of respect for nature. Absolutely recommended for all little ones and their guardians.

This book is so beautiful! I bought it for my six-month-old and he loved looking at it as well as hearing the rhythm of the poem. It's about an Inuit child who learns life lessons from nature and the animals around him. I recommend it for everyone, especially Canadians!
