   Wonderful story and artwork
A big hit for my kids. I loved the artwork, the story, and the fact that it was a true story, but we were all shocked to see the actual pictures of participants.

   wonderful, wonderful book
My grandsons are 10, 7, and 5. They were riveted. There are illustrations that add to the atmosphere of the story. Seal oil lamps and chewing on sealskin can be used to make sewing boots. There is a lot of drama, one of which is lost on the ice. There's a different way of living. There was a new world of ice with strange new words. Children with their favorite toys were included in the drama. There were photographs of the people we just read about, the ones who survived, and it was all true. The book was a great adventure for everyone.

   a wonderful tale children will want to hear again and agani
This beautifully illustrated picture book combines history and fancy to tell a story that will appeal to young readers. In sparse and poetic language, the author enters into the essence of Inupiaq culture, just as she enters the life of a Snowflake. When my son was small, I read this a lot. It's a great read aloud. We had a copy signed by the illustrator and it now has a special place on his shelf.

   Great read
I just finished reading this to my daughter who is interested in Natives from all over the world. The story is good and based on true events. It's highly recommended.

   Riveting
The best adventure is true life. The harrowing journey of a small group of people whose boat gets stuck in the ice is laid out here. It reminds me of the Lewis and Clark expedition, when Europeans relied on native people to help explore the unknown regions of North America. This is a great introduction to life above the circle. The native Americans are treated as deserving of respect.

   Cute and Historically Connected children's book
I was reading for a children's class. The author collaborated with elders. It was interesting to get facts about the people of Barrow. The art work is beautiful and the author has humility and respect.
