We Are Grateful: Otsaliheliga by Traci Sorell, and illustrated by Frane Lessac. NEW!

Otsaliheliga is a Cherokee word used to express gratitude. It’s a word they use to remind themselves of all the things they’re grateful for throughout the year. In the fall, the Cherokee say Otsaliheliga as shell shakers dance all night and celebrate the Great New Moon Ceremony. In the winter they say Otsaliheliga as they share stories over buttery bean bread and steamy hominy soup. The spring brings new life, and the Cherokee say Otsaliheliga to the plants and flowers sprouting up out of the ground. And as the summer sun scorches the earth, they say Otsaliheliga for the crawdads in the cool creeks and the season’s first harvest. Every day, every season, there’s something to be grateful for.

Your young readers will be delighted as they discover how much they have to be thankful for in the world, all while learning new words from the Cherokee language. Ages 3-7. 32pp.
