Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we’re entering the darkest time of year — when nature slows and sinks into dormancy — and this month’s read, ‘The Origin of Day & Night,’ is the perfect fireside companion. Passed orally from storyteller to storyteller for hundreds of years, this beautifully illustrated book weaves together elements of an origin story and a traditional animal tale, giving young readers a window into Inuit mythology. Snuggle up as you meet Tiri the fox who brings darkness and Ubluq the hare who brings day. Together, they learn there’s room for both when they work as a team.
Plus this month’s art project will be:
After reading, explore contrast, line, and pattern as you make 2D carvings on paper. Carving is central to the Inuit people’s vibrant art tradition. Inuit carvings typically depict wild animals and daily life and are created on wood, bones, and stone. This warm-up project explores the process of carving in a kid-friendly, book-inspired way. Then, create Arctic-inspired clay medallions using a texture printing process that highlights the contrast between day and night. These mini sculptures will make a lasting impression on your family as seasonal keepsakes you’ll display year after year.
