Summer Reading for NCCS Upper School Students 2022: 9th Grade book

Dear Ninth Grader,

A note from your teachers:

This book will set us up for the storytelling you will be doing in ninth grade. It celebrates the oral tradition and reminds us that stories are valuable and effective ways to preserve history and culture. Mrs. Gault hopes the short stories and images will be a pleasant reading experience. No need to get bogged down in the details. Take what you can from the book, make some notes in the margins, and we will talk when we return to school!
