Opinion

From Library Staff

Tribe: Lakota. Lakota children write of their lives, hopes, and dreams in powerful free verse. This is a dramatically illustrated collection not to be missed.

This is a great book showing how these kids really are feeling throughout their lives and what poetry is able to bring out in them. It is a quick read but it will have a lasting impression on the ways you view life. The pictures are great (though there are only a few) and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
