New Native children’s books
As you and the young people in your life settle down for a long winter’s nap, a number of new Native children’s books would make great bedtime stories, especially for those hungry little book worms.

Forever Cousins by Laurel Goodluck (Mandan, Hidatsa and Tsimshian) has been getting good reviews since its October release. It focuses on a pair of young cousins and how their relationship changes when one of them moves away.

Look, Grandma! Ni Elisi! by Art Coulson (Cherokee) weaves math and the Cherokee language with a story about a boy on a quest for the perfect container to show off his artwork.
