Nipin by Cam Robertson
Nîpin – “It is summer” – introduces children age 5-10 to basic Cree phrases about summer including the hot sun, thunderclouds, little puppies, frogs singing, children picking berries, and other delights of the season. Vivid photos depict real objects for easy identification. Nîpin is a valuable instructional tool for Cree language teachers, and parents who would like to help their children learn the Cree language.
