Breeze's Review: (Guest Reviewer)

What a well written and well illustrated children's book. There is such an important message being explained in this book for children of all ages. I enjoyed reading it with my daughter and explaining to her how important it is that we take care of the earth so her animals friends like Nanertak and Nanuck can enjoy their home. My favorite part about the book were the illustrations. They are so rich with color and deep in meaning. Certainly the author did an excellent job of getting the message across through not only the words on the pages but also the pictures that illustrate the message.

My favorite line held such an important message for children that hear the story "Nunuck soon realized the children were the only hope for a cold future in the Arctic once again." I hope children and parents alike can appreciate the importance of a children's book like this. This certainly deserves Five Stars!
