Besides connections to Social Studies curricula, this book provides many opportunities for students to practise using visualization as a strategy to develop a deeper understanding of the life of the Inuit during the late eighteenth century. I would highly recommend this book as an effective teaching tool at multiple grade levels.-- Canadian Teacher Magazine --
Angutiup ânguanga / Anguti's Amulet is an impressive collaborative work. The simple survival story will appeal to younger children but, more importantly, its historical integrity serves as a valuable teaching tool for Native studies.-- Resource Links --
In both the English and Inuktitut languages, Anguti's Amulet shares a realistic Inuit adventure story set in early 1700's Labrador, as well as interesting archaeological details from excavating the site in the 21st Century. . . . Highly recommended for those interested in the Inuktitut language, Inuit culture, Canadian history, and archaeology. Recommended for all Canadian libraries and Grades 2–6 classrooms.-- CM Magazine --
Apart from the many fine photographs and drawings, this [second] section has an unique feature: a number of the artifacts illustrated appear in the pictures accompanying the story; the reader is asked to find which one each is in. This makes "Anguti's Amulet" a valuable teaching tool in yet another way.-- The Guardian --
Cynthia Colosimo of Forteau beautifully illustrates the story. Both Inuit and non-Inuit participants together created this wonderful award-winning book. It is a story from the past that brings relevance to the present.-- Atlantic Books Today --
