"This picture book adaptation about a new child born in the Arctic succeeds in its new board book form. While the language is sophisticated and the text is longer than most found in board books, the lyrical quality will capture children's attention. The animated illustrations dominate each page and complement the text. This purchase should be considered to add diversity and elegance to board book collections." --School Library Journal

"Debut author Kalluk presents a series of warm affirmations for a newborn (the name "Kulu" is an Inuktitut term of endearment). Neonakis's artwork...offers a genuinely folklike sensibility and strong, dynamic compositions."--Publishers Weekly

"This is a terrific book for those who have a newborn in the house... And for those of us who just need a book that rights the world for us, that reminds us of that world in all its richness."--American Indians in Children's Literature (AICL)

"[A] lovely bedtime book . . . Young children will be captivated by the beauty of the Arctic world embracing little Kulu."--Quill & Quire
