Uses unique cultural items to t only teach counting but also cultural literacy This counting book uses everyday Inuit tools to teach babies rudimentary counting skills. From items that are familiar to many North Americans, such as kayaks, sleds, and spears, to lesser-kwn tools, such as the ulu and a stone cooking lamp, this book is a culturally unique counting book for any parent looking to expose their children to the culture of the Arctic. The book contains Inuktitut words in syllabics, one of two common writing systems used by Inuktitut speakers, and also includes the same Inuktitut words written in Roman orthography and English, so that n-Inuktitut speakers will be able to sound out the Inuktitut terms.
