Carry Me, Mama is a charming picture book about a child's first serious attempt at walking and her loving mother's efforts to encourage the child. The Native content is suggested only by the illustrations. A girl and her mother travel about by foot and usually mother carriers her daughter in the back of her parka. The landscape suggests a Subarctic region of Canada. The little family enjoys walking to family members' cabins, drying fish, picking berries, and going to the local store. The cabins are typically wood and have wood stoves for heating.
