Sharing 'our Stories' from Alaska

It's difficult, if not impossible, for Alaska Native parents to find books their children can identify with. That void prompted one group to help four Alaska Natives write their first children's book. It's part of the Best Beginnings, Seasons of Alaska series. On today's show we have Angela Gonzalez, Joni Spiess, Carla Snow and Yaari Toolie-Walker who all took on the challenge of writing from a child's perspective. Alyssa London and Vera Starbard have also written children's books based in Alaska and featuring Alaska Natives.
