Praise & Recognition

This is a story of remarkable courage and initiative in a young person who wanted to help others less fortunate. Canadian Teacher
Holler includes the wisdom of the elders as personified by Kahasi, Lacey’s grandmother. Reverence for the old ways, through such traditional crafts as beading and making moccasins, is also documented...It would make an excellent introduction to a study of children making a difference in the world, such as the ongoing work of Craig Kielburger. CM Magazine
Could it really happen? It’s a question often posed by readers. Fictional stories need to have the ring of authenticity or readers, particularly young ones, likely won’t read them. There will be no questions asked about Alberta freelance writer Sue Farrell Holler’s book for young people, Lacey and the African Grandmothers, which was inspired by a powerful real-life story.
