9781561455454: Immi's Gift

Way, way up north in a snow-covered, frozen world, a young girl breaks a hole in the ice and fishes for her supper. But instead of a fish, at the end of the line is a small, brightly painted wooden bird. She ties it onto her necklace, next to a small white bear.
Day after day her fishing pole brings up more colorful surprises from the swirling sea under the frozen ice. She decorates her igloo with the colorful treasures and animals come from far and wide to visit with her and share stories of faraway lands. On the last day she visits the fishing hole she drops the small bear from her necklace into the water.
Faraway, a young boy walks along a beach in the hot, hot sun. He throws something colorful into the water. Then something catches his eye. There washed up on the beach is a small wooden bear. ...
Karin Littlewood has crafted a simple, affecting story of how individuals around the world connect and even enrich each other s lives. Her beautiful, full-spread watercolor illustrations colorfully depict the story s shifting locations from the frozen Arctic to the tropical shoreline, and the vast and diverse world that exists below the sea.

Littlewood studied graphic design at the University of Northumbria, followed by an MA at Manchester Metropolitan University, where she specialized in illustration. She lives in England.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 2–When Immi, an Inuit child, goes ice fishing, she is surrounded by a world of white. Hoping to catch just one more fish, instead she pulls up a brightly colored wooden bird, its vivid appearance in sharp contrast to the ice and snow swirling around her. She adds it to her necklace, next to a small white bear. On the days that follow, she fishes out other brightly colored objects and hangs them in her igloo until it is awash in color. Various polar animals are attracted, and Immi snuggles with them while they share stories of faraway lands. When the snow begins to melt, Immi departs, but before she goes she throws her small white bear into the ice-fishing hole. It is later retrieved from tropical waters by the boy who has been tossing his brightly colored creatures into the waves. The painterly illustrations done in colored pencil, watercolor, and gouache capture Immi's frozen world, and her little flight of fancy seems logical escapism for anyone living even briefly in such isolated and lonely circumstances. This might be a jumping-off point to discuss how the imagination can provide relief and comfort, but it's an additional purchase.Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ
