Written by Shawna Thomson and Nadia Sammurtok. Shawna Thomson grew up in southern Ontario but has called Nunavut home since 2011 when she moved to Taloyoak. She currently works as an educator in Iqaluit and Nadia Sammurtok is an Inuit writer and educator originally from Rankin Inlet, Nunavut. Illustrated by Valentina Jaskina.

Spencer the Siksik can’t wait for the first snowfall. He is going to build a snow fort with Gary the Snow Goose!

When Spencer’s mom tells him he must first shovel his grandma’s steps, he doesn’t understand why she has to ruin his fun. He just wants to play outside! But when Spencer sees that his grandma and her neighbours can’t leave their houses, he remembers what his mom taught him about taking care of Elders in his community.

Follow along as Spencer learns the importance of one of the eight guiding Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit principles: serving others. Explore more books in the Spencer the Siksik series to see how Spencer and his friend Gary learn about the other principles! Full-colour illustrations throughout.
