Reviews

"Stolen Words / kimotinaniwiw itwewina recognizes the pain of those whose culture and language were taken from them, and reveals how that pain is passed down, and how healing can also be shared -- making it a unique and unreservedly recommended addition to family, elementary school, and community library bilingual picture book collections for children."
