Way Back Then is a bedtime picture book from Inhabit Media featuring the outstanding artwork by the renowned Inuk artist Germaine Arnaktauyok. This simple bedtime story, written in both English and Inuktitut, introduces young readers to several traditional narratives or legends based on Inuit teachings. Kudlu's children will not go to sleep until he tells them a story of long ago. Before they will shut their eyes, they want to hear about a time long before Kudlu was born, a time when the world was magic. Before they can sleep, they want to hear about giants, animals disguised as humans, little people the size of lemmings, and all of the other wonderful things that existed way back then. The book contains a glossary/pronunciation guide and introduction. The art by Germaine Arnaktauyok enhances each story and dramatically depicts the traditional lifestyle and appearance of the people of the Arctic Way Back Then. An ideal read aloud for preschool and kindergarten. Highly Recommended. This book was named one of the best international picture books of 2015, as selected by Kirkus Review.
