Local Heroes Preschool Story Time At Santee Library: 'Jingle Dancer'
Join us on November 7, 2013 at 10:30 a.m., as we read "Jingle Dancer," by Cynthia Leitich Smith, the children’s accompaniment to the 2013 One Book, One San Diego selection "Caleb’s Crossing" by Geraldine Brooks.
Barona Cultural Center & Museum Curator O.J. Vanegas will visit the library to share artifacts and stories from Kumeyaay and Diegueno native culture.
About the Book:
Jenna, a contemporary Muscogee (Creek) girl in Oklahoma, wants to honor a family tradition by jingle dancing at the next powwow. But where will she find enough jingles for her dress? An unusual, warm family story, beautifully evoked in Cornelius Van Wright and Ying-Hwa Hu's watercolor art.
