Readers visualize when they make images in their heads from the text that they are reading or that is being read to them.When talking to students about visualizing it is important to emphasize that:

  1. Visualizing is easy to do.
  2. Visualizing and connecting are very similar. The images that you create in your mind come from connecting the author's words to your memories.
  3. There are many colourful words that help you create pictures (rainbows, etc.)

A Coyote Solstice Tale
Author: Thomas King
Traditional Territory: Cherokee
Format: Hardcover
  • Coyote is having friends over for a little solstice party in the woods when a little girl comes by unexpectedly. She leads the friends through the snowy woods to the mall -- a place they had never seen before. The trickster goes crazy with glee as he shops with abandon, only to dis-cover that filling a shopping cart with goodies is not quite the same thing as actually paying for them.


Traditional Territory: Inuit
Format: Hardcover
  • Alego is a beautifully simple story, written in Inuktitut and English, about a young Inuit girl who goes to the shore with her grandmother to collect clams for supper. Along the way she discovers tide pools brimming with life -- a bright orange starfish, a creepy-crawly thing with many legs called an ugjunnaq, a hornshaped sea snail and a sculpin.

    Written and illustrated by Ningeokuluk Teevee, one of the most interesting young artists in Cape Dorset, home to the great tradition of Inuit art, this is an enchanting and utterly authentic introduction to the life of an Inuit child and her world.

    Alego includes an illustrated glossary of sea creatures as well as a map of Baffin Island. Ages 4-7


Berry Magic
Format: Paperback
  • Long ago, the only berries on the tundra were hard, tasteless, little crowberries. As Anana watches the ladies complain bitterly while picking berries for the Fall Festival, she decides to use her magic to help. "Atsa-ii-yaa (Berry), Atsa-ii-yaa (Berry), Atsaukina!" (Be a berry!), Anana sings under the full moon turning four dolls into little girls that run and tumble over the tundra creating patches of fat, juicy berries: blueberries, cranberries, salmonberries, and raspberries. The next morning Anana and the ladies fill basket after basket with berries for the Fall Festival. Thanks to Anana, there are plenty of tasty berries for the agutak (Eskimo tee cream) at the festival and forevermore. As she did with THE EYE OF THE NEEDLE (praised by the New York Times Book Review, a San Francisco Chronicle Choice, and a Maryland Black-Eyed Susan Picture Book Award winner), Yup''ik Eskimo elder Betty Huffmon shared this folktale with author/illustrator Teri Sloat, who brings it to life with her delightful illustrations.
