Sweetest Kulu is a beautiful story about when baby Kulu is born. All the arctic animals come to give him gifts. The gifts they give to Kulu are important character traits for him to grow up with, like, “finish what you start,” “protect what you believe in,” “and always believe in yourself.” This story is written by a Canadian author who lives in Nunavut, which is in the Arctic.
I loved Sweetest Kulu. I like that the mother is describing Kulu in loving ways; she calls him “beautiful Kulu,” “kind Kulu,” “beloved Kulu,” and “magnificent Kulu.” It shows how much she loves her baby. I loved all of the arctic animals in the story, like the narwhal, beluga whale, muskox, and caribou. I am 7 years old, and there were many words that I did not understand while reading, such as “spontaneity,” “modest,” and “practical foundation.” The illustrations are fantastic. They are beautiful, soft, and celebrate Inuit tradition and animals. This book made me feel happy while I read it.
