The Inuit Thought of It by Alootook Ipellie

This is a very cool children's book. It goes step by step through the many innovations that the Inuit have developed to enable them to thrive in one of the World's most inhospitable climates.
From dog sleds, dog boots, animal skin kayaks, igloos, snow goggles and many more, the Inuit have met the challenge to survive. The books is loaded with full colour illustrations and photos. There is enough information to keep parents reading with their children. It is sure to prompt comparisons to many of the items that we use everyday in the winter months without even realizing their history.
