Arctic Dreams

From Bookwatch: “Carole Gerber’s Arctic Dreams is cast in the form of a free-verse poem in which an Eskimo mother spins a story that takes her sleepy child on a journey through the Arctic. The mother’s vivid descriptions prompt the Eskimo child to imagine that he is part of every scene, experiencing the grandeur of this vast region with all his senses, before falling quietly asleep, surrounded by the animals he encounters along the way. Gerber’s rhythmic text is vividly and memorably illustrated by Marty Husted’s superb watercolors. PICK OF THE LIST, GREAT LAKES BOOKSELLERS’ ASSOCIATION
