Children's Literature — Illustration

Ningeokuluk Teevee, Cape Dorset (Nunavut), Alego,
text by Ningeokuluk Teevee, translation by Nina Manning-Toonoo.

Ningeokuluk Teevee's pencil drawings express beautifully a manner of dress, food, land, air, cold, warmth, surprise and age. The storytelling is a heart speaking to a heart, capturing the spiritual relationship that a child has with the world she lives in. This gentle book will warm hearts.
