Description

Bedtime in Nunatsiavut is written by Raeann Brown, an Inuit artisan. This children's book depicts the transformative dreams envisioned by a young Inuit girl, with the help of her loving mother. 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 Ananak, her mother, tucks her into bed and gives her a kunik, a 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 Ananak's constant love. Written and illustrated by first-time author Raeann Brown, Bedtime in Nunatsiavut is a beautiful and joyful tribute to an Inuit childhood.
