    Laurel Goodluck & Bridget George - Pow Wow Life 102

    Laurel Goodluck & Bridget George - Pow Wow Life 102

    Join Paul G for an interview with the author and illustrator of the new children’s book - “Too Much - My Great Big Native Family”.
    About the book:
    A little boy wants a chance to shine on his own but discovers that being apart from his large and lively Native family isn’t necessarily better in this heartwarming and humorous picture book.
    When Russell gets a part in the school play, he lights up like a shining star—and he can’t wait to tell his big, boisterous Native family the exciting news. But catching their attention when they all get together feels impossible; no matter where they go, they seem to be too noisy, too many, and just too much!
    Russell decides to keep his big debut to himself and fly solo for once…but being alone may not be the answer. After all, there’s no such thing as too much love, and when he needs them most, his great big family knows how to be just enough.
