Abstract
 
Description
The affirming story of how a contemporary Native American girl turns to her family and community to help her dance find a voice.Jenna loves the tradition of jingle dancing that has been shared by generations of women in her family, and she hopes to dance at the next powwow. But she has a problem—how will her dress sing if it has no jingles?The cone-shaped jingles sewn to Grandma Wolfe's dress sing tink, tink, tink, tink.Jenna's heart beats to the brum, brum, brum, brum of the powwow drum as she daydreams about the clinking song of her grandma's jingle dancing.The warm, evocative watercolors of Cornelius Van Wright and Ying-Hwa Hu complement author Cynthia Leitich Smith's lyrical text in this picture book. Perfect for classroom and library sharing. - from Amzon
