Mom's Choice AwardIt’s Dori’s birthday and she doesn’t have to do her normal chores today. Her father makes a special dulcimer for Dori and it is the perfect gift!Angie Wilson comes from a long line of Appalachian descent. As she often listened to stories about her grandparents, she realized that yes, they faced many hardships, but each had a happy childhood with fond memories of strong family bonds. The series, “Appalachian Heritage” is a collection of stories that brings the region to life as the reader travels back to a different time- where everyone did their part, and life offered many simple joys.

Excellent glimpse into early 1900s living in Appalachia. Author Angie Wilson brings her mother's childhood stories to life in her 'Appalachian Series.' History of the times included on page 32. The illustrations of Dori, by Ashley Teets, are based on photographs of the author's mother as a child. Good early reader and will spark conversations between the generations.
