Inuit authors Dorothy and David Aglukark share their knowledge of caribou in this striking volume. Educators will find this a valuable resource for student research and independent reading, and even as a read-aloud. This well-organized resource makes information accessible to young researchers, with a table of contents, manageable two-page spreads for each topic, beautifully detailed illustrations, and text features such as labels and a diagram. The clearly written text respects readers with relevant content vocabulary. The variety of sentence length and structure, along with age-appropriate richness of language, makes for an enjoyable read-aloud. Information about past and present uses of caribou, as well as hunting practices, will guide students in learning about the historical and current importance of the caribou to Inuit life. Caribou is one of several volumes in the Animals Illustrated series.
