Description


A mother. A story. A curious child.

"How did I get in your belly?" a child asks his mother. "Well, it's a magical story..." she tells him. In this lyrical love letter from mother to son, a woman reflects on her journey to motherhood. From learning to care for others to honouring family members through Inuit naming practices, this touching book celebrates all the ways in which a child is loved.

Written by Inuit author, throat singer, and filmmaker Tanya Snow, You Come From the Stars showcases a mother's tenderness for her child against the backdrop of the stunning Arctic tundra.
