Mountain Born

We finished reading Mountain Born.

The kids really connected with this book. It was a different kind of read for us, but really good. The language was challenging and stretched us. The topics were deep and we had much discussion about life and death.

My husband and I were amazed at the symbolism the author included. We can’t wait to read more of her works. She has written over 40 books.

If you are wanting to do more with this book, here is a collection of resources that you might find useful.
