« Rêve un peu, Kulu, ce monde te louange avec la plus magnifique des chansons. »
Dans cette magnifique histoire poétique à raconter au coucher imaginée par la chanteuse de gorge de renom Celina Kalluk, les animaux de l’Arctique viennent offrir leurs plus beaux présents à un nouveau-né.
Raconté de façon lyrique et tendre par une mère parlant à son petit « Kulu », mot inuktitut pour désigner affectueusement les bébés et les jeunes enfants, ce livre superbement illustré est empreint des valeurs inuites traditionnelles de l’amour et du respect envers la terre et sa faune.
