In the third book of the Jo Jo Makoons series, Jo Jo plans a winter Olympics-style event for her Ojibwe community. After noticing the healthy habits of her Mama, Kokum, and family cat, Mimi, she’s excited when her teacher announces that they’ll be learning about health. But a snowstorm closes everything on her Ojibwe reservation, so Jo Jo takes this opportunity to help her classmates and Elders by creating a healthy winter event.
