Written by Gayla Pedersen, narrated by Sophie Takuka'aq Shepherd and illustrated by Gloria Selby, this is a story about a girl and her mother learning about the life cycle of a berry.

They will happily spend hours coloring in the book and they can record themselves as well. It's great fun for kids of all ages and it helps with early learning and literacy development.

This book is told in the Alutiiq language as spoken on Afognak and Kodiak Islands, Alaska.
