Lacey Little Bird loves spending time with Kahasi, who is like a grandmother to her. When Lacey hears about a project to help grandmothers in Africa, she decides to raise money by selling beaded purses.

Sue Farrell Holler traces the start of her writing career to elementary school when she regularly wrote to more than a hundred penpals. A genuine love of writing led Sue to journalism school and she is now a freelance writer based in Grande Prairie, Alberta.

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. - Prairie books NOW

This inspiring book is highly recommended.
