Hanna is a hardworking pioneer girl with an understanding heart and lots of skills: dress design, sewing, cooking, and hospitality. She's also brave and open to learning new customs, languages, and foods. She needs all of those in this fresh new story about starting a new life in a western town in the Dakota Territory in 1880.

With Hanna's first-hand knowledge of racism, (she has a half-Chinese and half-Korean mother and a white father), she thinks more deeply about the issues dividing the settlers and the "Indians" than most of the people in her new home. I love the way she makes friends with the women gathering "prairie turnips" even though she doesn't understand their language.

In the author's note, Linda Sue Park says she was influenced by Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House on the Prairie books. I really like that the author took the trouble to put the Lakota language words into the story. I wish she also included the translations. :)

[Years ago, I went to see Dances With Wolves in a Minnesota movie theater. It was so cool to hear the Lakota language being spoken, and to know that local Lakota people could hear a film made with their language.]

Sensitive reader warning: There is a sticky moment with drunk and racist men behaving badly, but it is handled well. Another reviewer suggested that parents read before giving to children under age 12. Seems wise.

A great story about how one brave girl makes friends and influences her new home in small, everyday ways. ( )

Good stuff. ( )

Very good historical fiction, but better for middle schoolers than high schoolers. The Chinese immigrant story will appeal to readers. Park's book A Long Walk to Water: Based on a True Story is a much better book for high school. YA Golden Sower nominee 2021-22. ( )

I didn't know it was a children's book when I checked it out-it was a large type book in the Large Type book section of my library. I really think it's good for everyone to read it. Since it's really different from the Little House books, I didn't even pick up on it's relationship to them until I read the author's notes. ( )

Prairie Lotus is Newberry award winning author Linda Sue Park's response to Little House on the Prairie. Park describes Prairie Lotus as “an attempt at a painful reconciliation” with a story she loved but also knew she would never have been allowed a place in because of the prejudice and views toward Native Americans (those that were not white) as "lesser".

While Little House on the Prairie emphasizes the survival of frontier life, Prairie Lotus exposes the overt prejudice and racially motivated microaggressions toward communities of color particularly Asian Americans through the perspective of its protagonist, Hanna.

Hanna, a biracial 15 year old girl longs to go to school, to have friends, and not have to hide away as different from white neighbors. Set in the Dakota Territory in the 1880s, Hanna's white father moves from San Francisco after the death of Hanna's Chinese and Korean mother. In their new community, Hanna struggles to attend school in the face of the prejudice of many neighbors.
