Dancing with the Cranes is a wonderfully compelling children's picture book by Okanagan writer Jeannette Armstrong about First Nations girl and her family as they await the arrival of the cranes and the birth of a new baby. After losing her grandmother, the girl feels sad and lonely and doesn't really want a new brother or sister. Her patient mother explains death and dying as part of the cycle of life. The girl thinks about the spring migration of the cranes and anticipates their return. This positive story about the death of a grandparent and the arrival of a new family member is part of the Caring For Me Series developed by the Penticton Indian Band Health Department as part of their First Nations Head Start Program.
