Five New Children’s Books by Authors from around the Globe

Travel the world with these five charming newly released children's books written by renowned children’s authors from around the globe.


Kamik an Inuit Puppy Story 
Adapted from the Memories of Donald Uluadluak 

"In order to train a good dog, you have to build trust with the dog, living with it every day and teaching it through how you behave and how you treat it. I spent a lot of time with my dogs. It was more like building a good friendship than raising an animal. Eventually they start to understand you and you start to understand them."

-Kamik an Inuit Puppy Story 
 
Travel to the northernmost territory of Canada and tag along as a little boy trains his headstrong, disobedient puppy, Kamik. As little Jake works hard to transform Kamik into a speedy sled dog, his grandfather shares the sled dog rearing traditions of the Inuit, who have been raising husky dogs for generations.
