[SR: 18221646], Library Binding, [EAN: 9780780745100], Perfection Learning, Perfection Learning, Book, [PU: Perfection Learning], Perfection Learning, "Northern Lights" is a beautiful tale that explores the mystical aspects of the northern lights in Inuit culture. Scientists have their own explanations for the phenomenon that occurs when the night sky shimmers with milky white patterns, or displays all the colors of the rainbow. But the Inuit prefer their own explanation: They believe the souls of the dead are engaging in a lively game of soccer, just as they did when they were living. They run all over the sky chasing a walrus head that they use for a soccer ball. This is the story of Kataujaq and the intimate relationship she has with her mother. They do almost everything together; they hug, rub noses and say "Mamaq" which means "You smell so nice." But a great sickness comes and Kataujaq's mother is taken south to the white people's hospital and never comes back. Kataujaq grieves, but is also able to rejoice when she and her grandmother watch the northern lights. This book celebrates family life, intimacy and the glory of nature., 3053, Multigenerational, 3045, Family Life, 1084192, Growing Up & Facts of Life, 4, Children's Books, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 3125, Death & Dying, 7009086011, Difficult Discussions, 1084192, Growing Up & Facts of Life, 4, Children's Books, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

Details of the book
Northern Lights: The Soccer Trails

In early winter, when smooth ice forms over the lakes and seas of the Arctic, the Inuit people play soccer by starlight using a ball of stuffed caribou hide. According to legend, the souls of dead people also love to play soccer, using a huge frozen walrus head. They can be seen running across the sky in the aurora borealis, the northern lights, which in Inuktituk are called Aqsalijaat or Aqsarniit--Soccer Trails. Michael Kusugak won the 1994 Ruth Schwartz Award for Northern Lights: The Soccer Trails, which recounts this uplifting myth from the perspective of Kataujaq, a little girl whose adored and adoring mother dies during a tuberculosis epidemic.

Though aimed at young children, Kusugak's discussion of death and grieving comes completely unvarnished. "It was such a long time ago," Kusugak writes. "Now Kataujaq was a big girl; well, almost a big girl. But she still missed her mother a lot.... Sometimes, when she was alone, Kataujaq cried. Sometimes, when she went to bed at night and thoughts came, she cried a lot." With time, though, after her grandmother teaches her to find solace in the company of lost loved ones as they play soccer in the skies above her, Kataujaq learns to cope with her grief. This moving story is illustrated with delicate watercolours by Kusugak's regular collaborator Vladyana Krykorka. Their other children's titles include A Promise Is a Promise (with co-author Robert Munsch), Baseball Bats for Christmas, and Arctic Stories. (Ages 4 to 8) --Deirdre Hanna
