Fatty Legs: A True Story | Christy Jordan-Fenton, Margaret Pokiak-Fenton, Liz Amini-Holmes

Middle grade book about an Inuit girl who longs to go off to a residential school so she can learn to read. It includes some wonderful pictures of the author and her family, but the sheer cruelty she is targeted with is astounding. A child - targeted! By Nuns!! I continue to be amazed at the awfulness of some humans.

LeahBergen Yes, this was a brutal read. 😢 23m

Littens, when I tell you I‘ve been on autopilot—I did not realize this was the sequel. I mean I knew it, but then stuff. I read it like it was the first. And it holds! But this is the danger of reading for work rather than pleasure. I‘m no factory reader.

Fry Bread by Kevin Noble is a fiction children's book that was published in 2019. It won the American Indian Youth Literature Award. It is about fry bread which is a flat dough bread that is fried in oil, shortening or lard which is a tradition to the Navajo people. This is a great book for any elementary age and i would love to read it to my class.

Fry Bread: A Native American Family Story was written by Kevin Noble Maillard and published in 2019. This is a beautiful book about how fry bread became apart of Native American culture. This book has won the Sibert Medal and the American Indian Youth Literature Honor Award.
