Families, kick off your summer reads together with Sherman Alexie, National Book Award-winning author, poet, and filmmaker, talking about his first picture book, Thunder Boy Jr., which celebrates the special relationship between father and son and the process of picking out a name. Thunder Boy Jr. is named after his dad, but just because people call his dad Big Thunder doesn't mean he wants to be Little Thunder. But just when Thunder Boy Jr. thinks all hope is lost, he and his dad pick the perfect name, a name that is sure to light up the sky.
