Making Raisins Dance
Sylvia Weiss Sinclair (Author)
DescriptionMaking Raisins Dance is a well written, very descriptive dedication to making a difference in the inner city, troubled kids of L.A. by a former student and teacher, who takes pride in her chosen profession. This story is a recollection of good times and bad, of promises made and broken, and of giving one's all to make a difference. Hoping for miracles does not make them happen, but helping a miracle come within one's grasp might make the difference necessary to influence a child's future. A touching story.
