How Nivi Got Her Names

How Nivi Got Her Names
by Laura Deal (Author) and Charlene Chua (Illustrator)

Booktalk: Nivi has always known that her names were special, but she does not know where they came from. One sunny afternoon, Nivi decides to ask her mom. The stories of the people Nivi is named after lead her to an understanding of traditional Inuit naming practices and knowledge of what those practices mean to Inuit people.

Snippet:

Nivi’s mom paused. She looked right at Nivi and said, “We all love you, dear Nivi, for all that you are. For the names that you have, for the character and traits we see in you, and the people we are reminded of when we are with you.”

Booktalk: Drawing inspiration from the natural world around her, a weaver woman with a magical touch crafts exquisite fabrics. And from the fabric she fashions a wondrous dress, with a bodice that sparkles of starlight and lace like the foam of an ocean wave. The weaver envisions the food and clothing she will be able to buy for her children from the sale of the dress. But when she takes the dress to a local shopkeeper, the weaver is told her work is not saleable. And so she starts over again.
