The submitter points out that this book is not politically correct – and they’re right, but that’s only one of its many flaws.
First of all, this is described as a “booklet.” Any booklet that has lasted 36 years and is still in what looks like reasonable condition was not used enough to be worth keeping.
Second of all, why are there seals on the cover? What do seals have to do with Inuit language? Location, sure, but it seems like they could come up with a more relevant cover – even for a booklet.
Next, the conversations included (see the pages included below) are ok…but not great. I mean, “You are slow” is a pretty rude thing to say to someone, even if it’s true. “I cannot stop you” is another strange phrase. How about “Where is the bathroom” and “The weather is cold”? Maybe they’re included in pages not submitted. Here’s hoping.
