The combination of Traci Sorell's gentle words and Madelyn Goodnight's vibrant illustrations brings depth and feeling to this touching story. Powwow Day unites the community's traditions and one girl's loneliness and sorrow, showing how the support of her family and friends makes all the difference in her outlook. The information at the end of the book is especially informative, using clear and simple language to describe the history and meaning of powwows.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
