Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3–This charming pourquoi tale tells of an Eskimo girl and her magic. Listening to the older women complain as they pick the hard, dry crowberries, Anana thinks up a plan to give them pleasure. She sews four dolls, each with a different color pelatuuk, or head scarf. After carrying them to the hills, she sings a special song and dances, transforming each doll into a berry girl who speckles the fields with cranberries, blueberries, raspberries, and salmonberries. Done in a palette of deep, earthy hues, ethereal blues, and bright highlights, Sloat's pictures are vibrant and engaging, befitting the land of the northern lights. The rich language enlightens readers to different elements of the Eskimo culture such as reindeer-skin bags, muskrat parkas, and the "ice cream" called akutaq. Delightful, playful, and beautifully written.–Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL

Format: Hardcover
Berry Magic by Teri Sloat and Betty Huffmon is about a woman, named Anaana, who made berries appear on the tundra by making little different homemade dolls. When Anaana sang the song, the dolls will come to life. Wherever they go on the tundra, berries will appear.

My favorite part was when Anaana sang, because it's in Yup'ik! I am a Yup'ik person too! The song is interesting. The song made the dolls turn into little people, and come out of the bag.

I liked this book because Anaana never complain about the crowberries. It's an interesting book, little people turning into little people, awesome.

You should read this book because you might want different kinds of berries. You will learn a little bit of Yup'ik words, only if you read this book. Enjoy the book!
