            An Inuksuk means welcome

            2015

            by Mary Wallace

            An inuksuk is a stone landmark that different peoples of the Arctic region build to leave a symbolic message. Inuksuit (the plural of inuksuk) can point the way, express joy, or simply say: welcome. A central image in Inuit culture, the inuksuk frames this picture book as an acrostic: readers will learn seven words from the Inuktitut language whose first letters together spell INUKSUK. Each word is presented in English and in Inuktitut characters, with phonetic pronunciation guides provided. --Publisher

            "Rodeo riders are honored athletes--skilled, smart, and tough. It takes brains, muscles, and a lot of practice to wrestle a racing steer to the ground or stay on top of a bucking, twisting bronco. Rodeo is the number-one most exciting sport out West. Not so sure? Take a look"-- Provided by publisher
