The Girl Who Helped Thunder
Retold by James Bruchac & Joseph Bruchac, Ph.D.
Illustrated by Stefano Vitale
The moment I saw this on the bookshelf, I knew I HAD to buy it, I was NOT disappointed. The folkloric tales of persistence, courage, faith in ones heritage and joy in the simple things. This book transcends all groups of peoples. I loved the morals that each 'story' had to share. I was eager to read the book to the grandchildren, story by story, one at a time, so we all had a chance to savor the beauty and wisdom each tale had to impart to the reader/listener. 5 STARS
