In Bedtime in Nunatsiavut, a little girl named Nya yearns to fly, swim, and wander like the goose, salmon, bear, fox, and other animals that populate her world. Each night, her loving Anânak (mother) tucks her into bed and gives her a kunik (nose-to-nose rub) to help Nya dream and transform into the animals she longs to be like.
In Nya’s dreams, she moves with the wonder and the freedom of the natural world, dancing beneath the dark Nunatsiavut skies, empowered and emboldened by her Anânak’s constant love.
Written and illustrated by first-time author Raeann Brown, Bedtime in Nunatsivaut is a beautiful and joyful tribute to an Inuit childhood.
Recommended for ages 5–8.
