Elisapee and Her Baby Seagull
Elisapee lives in the tundra with her family. One day her dad brings home a baby seagull for Elisapee to raise. Elisapee learns what her baby seagull needs to eat and goes out to find that food with her brother when the tide is down. Her seagull’s name is Nau. Nau grows and grows. Eventually Nau moves from a cardboard box to live outside on top of Elisapee’s shed. Nau starts hanging out with other wild seagulls, so Elisapee ties a pink ribbon on her foot to be able to tell Nau apart from the rest. Elisapee even teaches Nau how to fly.
I really liked reading Elisapee and Her Baby Seagull. I first wanted to review this book because I thought it would be neat to read about a girl who had a pet seagull. I thought it was really neat to learn that the author is from Nunavut, and I think the illustrations make it look like Elisapee is also from Nunavut. I love how the illustrator drew Nau to look like a friendly seagull who loves Elisapee. I like that they talk about how much work it took for Elisapee to learn how to take care of her seagull. I have two dogs and three cats, so I have also learned how to care for my animals. I would recommend this book to young kids who love animals and to kids who may have lost a pet and feel sad about it.
