Bedtime in Nunatsiavut by Raeann Brown (Arsenal Pulp Press)

Engraving artist Raeann Brown’s debut book is Bedtime in Nunatsiavut, an adorable and sweet bedtime story. Every night, Nya is tucked in with a nose kiss from her mother, and then dreams of running, flying, or swimming like her favourite animals. A fun story that encourages young readers to play along while they’re settling into sleep, it also teaches them Inuk words and connects them with the natural world.But you don’t have to take our word for it:
