    1. I creditBooger Beard. I will explain. While many children’s librarians will tell you that they have strived to make their book collections diverse and inclusive, they have always been hampered by what was being published in a given year. Nowhere is this more evident than when it comes to fun and funny books. Since #ownvoices and diversity are serious topics, they have been treated with great care and respect by authors and illustrators over the years. But as with anything, if you hand children [...]

    2. In this reassuring book featuring a young Inuk girl, readers will find plenty with which to relate. Nalvana loves the idea of superheroes and is curious about what superpower she might have. As she goes about her days, she identifies the special talents or powers of those around her and wonders if she might have some of those. Some of her friends are able to run swiftly, almost fly in their swings, and carve beautiful ice sculptures, but Nalvana can do none of these. After spending so long tryin [...]

    3. Nalvana is on the look out for superpowers, and she keeps finding it in others, but what about her own? This is a great kid-believable story of finding out what you're good at all on its own, but is even better because of the setting: it is set in the far north "where the winter is always longer than summer", with occasional Inuk words thrown in (a short glossary is included).

    4. Nelvana is a sweet, feisty young girl who lives in a small village in the Arctic with her mother. Every day she dons her cape and some rustic snowmobiling goggles and transforms into a super hero. But wait superheroes have magical powers don't they? Nelvana can't pinpoint what power she possesses. What's hers she ponders?

    5. This beautifully illustrated picture book tells a sweet tale about a girl trying to figure out what she's good at. My one small quibble is that she doesn't try anything for very long before giving up and moving on to something else.

    6. Nalvana thinks all her friends have superpowers, super speeds, and super skills and encourages them to be the best. However when she thinks about herself she wonders if she has anything special. Her mom reminds her that she is always good at making her friends feel better.

    7. Nalvana worries she may be the only kid in town without a superpower, but her mom shows that she is unique and special and that her superpower was in front of her all along.

    8. Really sweet story about finding your strengths, beautiful illustrations. Native author who uses her native language in the text (glossary of terms in back). Wonderful little gem of a book.
