Description

In T is for Territories: A Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut Alphabet, acclaimed storyteller Michael Kusugak gives an A-Z tour of Canada's three territories, the northern region of the country that is a giant in size, history, and cultures. Young readers learn about the Arctic Winter Games with sports such as the one-foot high-kick, listen to world-renowned storytellers at Whitehorse's International Storytelling Festival, or experience Wood Buffalo National Park where sometimes visitors have to stop and wait for wildlife to get out of the way. Everyone will enjoy this alphabetical journey that showcases the riches of the territories. This title is an easy-to-understand fact filled book with great rhymes and expository text. Topics include Skookum Jim Mason and the Klondike Gold Rush, the Arctic Ocean, Caribou and Baffin Island, Qaggi (a feast of caribou and fish), syllabics and literacy, and umiaq (a wooden framed boat), making this information book suitable for grades 3 to 8.
