Uumajut, Volume Un (French) Étudions Les Animaux de L'Arctique is volume one in the dual language series Uumajut. Written by Simon Awa, Anna Ziegler and Stephanie McDonald and illustrated by Romi Caron, this bilingual French and Inuktitut title is translated into French by Donna Christopher. The Inuktitut syllabics translation is by Leah Otak. This information book explores the various animals of the tundra and the sea and ice regions of the Arctic. A brief introduction provides additional background for the teacher and the section about the tundra features information about the lemming, caribou, Arctic fox, and the wolverine. Animals of the sea and ice include the amphipods, Arctic char, bearded seal, Beluga whale, and the Bowhead whale. For example the section about the amphipods focuses on the tiny shrimp-like creatures that live in the sea under the pack ice and scavenge for food such as dead animals in the water. Each creature is depicted within its habitat and the detailed illustrations provide a clear understanding of each animal that is important to the Inuit people. Recommended.
