Description

It’s a Mitig! is Bridget George’s first book. She is an Anishinaabe author-illustrator and graphic designer raised on the Kettle and Stony Point First Nation in Ontario. It’s a Mitig! guides young readers through the forest while introducing them to Ojibwe words for nature. From sunup to sundown, encounter an amik playing with sticks and swimming in the river, a prickly gaag hiding in the bushes and a big, bark-covered mitig. Featuring vibrant and playful artwork, an illustrated Ojibwe-to-English glossary and a simple introduction to the double-vowel pronunciation system, plus accompanying online recordings, It’s a Mitig! is one of the first books of its kind. It was created for young children and their families with the heartfelt desire to spark a lifelong interest in learning language. An excerpt is: Giizis—the sun—rises. What’s hiding in the trees?
