Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for THE DRUM CALLS SOFTLY
“With paired verses in English and Cree matched to broad, finely detailed scenes of dancing silhouettes placed against semi-abstract backgrounds, this illustrated poem compellingly invites readers to join the Round Dance at a powwow.” – KIRKUS REVIEWS
PRAISE FOR THE LONG POWWOW NIGHTS
“This is a multisensory and multicultural gem. It utilizes poetry, music, and art to relate a story of powwow and intergenerational connection… Teachers of all levels and disciplines will be able to utilize this resource as a springboard for a variety of creative activities for students. The reader will be left with new insight into a traditional powwow with its mystic dancers and a daughter's remembrance of her mother through the ritual. The young at heart of all ages will relish this truly sensitive celebration of heritage and culture. This unique resource is a must for the library for youth.” - VOYA
