    One thought on “The Potlatch Family”

    1. I found this little book interesting. I felt it was vague on Simon's injuries, but it shows how one family member can change things for a family and an entire community.

    2. Mesmerized me as a pre-teen. Shows the difference a sibling can make in his family, and the difference a family can make in their community.What a treasure a book club can be to a child! Thanks, Mom, for investing in me with a subscription to Popcorn Bag.

    3. A gentle story, of the sort kids OUGHT to be reading, instead of Twilight and The Hunger Games, about Plum, a teenage girl who gets in touch with her Chinook Indian roots.
