Jingle Dancer

Reviewed by:

Jenna dreams about her grandmother’s jingle dancing – she would love to do the same. She does have a problem, though – how will her dress sing if it has no jingles? This is the story of a contemporary Native girl who turns to her family and community to help her dance. A very nice story about a modern Aboriginal child comfortable with both contemporary life and her traditions.
