We’ll love you as much as the narwhal loves its tusk.
We’ll love you as much as the seal loves its musk.
Little One, our new baby,
Welcome to our family.
This loving bedtime poem shares all the ways in which a family will welcome their long-awaited new member. Sharing love as deep as the beluga dives and as warm as the shaggy hair of the muskox, this poem envelopes a new baby in the embrace of their new home in all its forms―the Arctic landscape and the welcoming arms of family.
Written by Inuk/Dene writer Masiana Kelly, and illustrated with warmth and softness by Tamara Campeau, this sweet and simple narrative celebrates the beauty of creating a family and the unbounding love waiting to be shared with a new little soul.
