We Are Grateful

"Otsaliheliga is a Cherokee word that is used to express gratitude.
Debut author Traci Sorell, a citizen of the Cherokee Nation , invites readers to journey through the year with a Cherokee family and their tribal nation as they express thanks for celebrations big and small.
Each season leaps off the page through veteran illustrator Frane Lessac's bright artwork. Cherokee words are included throughout, presented both phonetically and written in the Cherokee syllabary.
Otsaliheliga reminds us to celebrate blessings and reflect on struggles - all year long."

The award winning book is the recipient of both the 2019 National Council of Teachers of English Orbis Pictus Honor Book and the 2019 Robert F. Sibert Honor Book awards.
