The Muskox and the Caribou is a 32-page picture book about a young muskox that becomes separated from his herd and his mother. But he is found by a young caribou and his mother becoming part of the caribou herd. Mother caribou felt concern for this young animal and she brought him into her herd taking care of him and encouraging her caribou son to play with the muskox. Days passed and muskox grew larger and his differences among the young caribou grew more visible. One day when mother caribou was searching for the muskox herd she came across a few muskox in the distance. Mother caribou knew it was time for this young muskox to join his own family. So baby muskox found his way back to his own relatives.  This charming story is told by Nadia Mike an Inuk educator, who recently graduated with a Bachelor of Education from the University of Regina. She is the author of Leah's Mustache Party and Ukaliq and Kalla Go Fishing. Colour illustrations are by Tamara Campeau an illustrator residing in a small town called Port-Cartier in northern Quebec. Finding where one belongs and how to deal with name-calling and teasing because of appearance are the themes found in this picture book. Recommended.
