In March, I had the honor of hearing Monique Gray Smith speak at the AkLA library conference. I plan to use this text for a unit on indigenous Alaskan plants and Yup'ik medicine/cooking.

"Gratitude plants the seed for abundance."

This story depicts the hopes that adults have for their children when they grow up including: being kind, standing up for others, and using their voices for change. I thought that this simple yet important narrative was a touching read that has important themes for young children to be exposed to! Overall, I think that this book would be great to read to a class when discussing class norms and expectations for how to treat one another,

This is a lovely, heart warming book for young children that I would highly recommend!

This is a story about being kind, and it features Indigenous children in it. It's great to see more diversity in children's books, especially with a book that displays it in such a great way. Showing that kindness is important and can be shown in many ways is a lovely message and theme for the book.

Five out of five stars.

Thank you to NetGalley and Orca Books for providing me a free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.… (més)
