From School Library Journal
Grade 2-3 Discusses, briefly and clearly, the Inuits' homelands, both traditional and contemporary housing, transportation, food, clothing, recreation and arts, although Osinski is more careful to use the preferred terms Inuit and Yupik, rather than Eskimo. Both make clear the contrast between present and past life styles, although neither suggests the social dislocations that have accompanied "modernization."
