Caught the interest of a reluctant reader
I loved Kidlik’s Kayak because it is informative and goes into great detail of what it’s like living in the Arctic and how everyone has to do their part. This is a really good book!
I will add that I handed this book to Jed when he really did not feel like reading (which for him is most days). The next day he was excitedly pointing out amazing facts. He expressed that he had no idea it could be so interesting. FABULOUS!!!
Easy intro to Inuit culture
I knew very little about the Inuit culture and this book made me want to learn more. The pictures were really helpful.
This was an amazing, immersive adventure! You learn about a different culture and my oldest (age 6) was riveted by the suspense. I will probably have him read it to himself when he is a bit older. There were so many unknown concepts or words, that at times it was a little hard for him to follow, but as a read-aloud, I was able to help with those issues as we went along.
This was genuinely a great book, and I highly recommend it!
This is the first glimpse we have had to Inuit life/culture. It was very interesting to all of us, and we learned a lot as we read this together! There was adventure, shock, and suspense! We would love to read and learn more about this very different way of life!
A quick, adventurous read
My reluctant reader loved this book. He said he liked that the characters were on a hunting trip, and they had to do some hard things. He also learned a lot about the Inuit people. His favorite fact was that they chewed whale skin like it was gum!
