The Raven and the Loon (Level 10)

Do you know what animals look like? Are you sure? Inuit aren’t sure, and their stories have been around for a long time. In the old days, it was easy to change shape. Animals lived like people. Their fur and feathers were like coats made of magic. But it was hard to change colour, and everyone needs colour in life. That’s why Raven and Loon decided to make beautiful coats for one another. But their creations did not go as planned…

Originally published by Inhabit Media, this big book can be shared with a classroom to teach students a traditional Inuit story that has been shared in the Arctic for generations.
