The Vine Basket by Josanne LaValley is definitely worthy of five stars It is beautifully written and gives you an inside look into what it is like to be a Uyghur pronounced as Wee ghur girl They are a Turkish ethnic group but live mostly in an area now considered as a part of China My husband and I think he is descended from this group so I have a special interest in this cultureThe star of this little book is Mehigul a little girl who is forced to stop her education by her father Her brother has run off to join a political movement Her father who is a compulsive drinker and gambler thinks that she should do her older brother's work Her mother is afraid to speak up against the father and lets her husband dictate what Mehigul has to do The father's poor opinion of Mehigul makes her think that she is worthlessBut Mehigul's grandfather Chong Ata the most respected member of the family notices that Mehigul is learning his talent and skills at basket weaving She watches him weave and picks it up by herself What is is that she has a great spark of creativity It is this creativity that changes her life Even though the customs of this culture are very different the lessons are the same Parents must learn how to respect their childrenI really enjoyed this little book I learned about the foods that they ate the way that the Uyghur decorate their mud houses with beautiful floral clothes the hard lives demanded in order to keep their children fed and the sand out of their faces But most important I learned about ways that children can find to escape forced child labor get the education that they need and get the respect that they badly need from their parentsI highly recommend this book for middle grade children and above I selected this book to review from the Vine program but that in no way influenced the thoughts in my review
