I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
This book is simply adorable. I love, love the illustrations. A fantastic book for kids about teamwork, preparation and creating something with friends. This book has it all: pronounciation guide for many Cree words used throughout the story, and a recipe for Kohkum’s bannock.
It was fun to see how the author assigned each animal with a task and how everyone came together to solve a problem. This whimsical story holds a great adventure told through gifted story-telling and beautifully drawn artwork.
Awasis is a sweet little girl who has many animal friends. The journey she goes on is full of challenges and successes with friends to help along the way.
