Animals, they're just like us

Cover of We All Play = Kimêtawâ
A review of We All Play = Kimêtawânaw by Julie Flett

Kimêtawânaw! We all play! Animals hide, peek, swim, chase, wiggle, and yawn in this gorgeously illustrated book by Cree-Meetis author, illustrator, and artist Julie Flett. And we play too! Children follow along with the fun, running and rolling in fields, climbing up snowy hills with their sleds, and winding down for a nap at the end of the book.

This is a great story to read aloud to young kids, with plenty of opportunities for moving your body. The end pages include a list of all the animals in the book and their names in Cree, and the publisher website includes audio pronunciations of all the Cree words in the book.
