From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 3?A rare and welcome combination: American Indian legends paired with factual information on the habitats, species, food, characteristics, Indian names, and attendant spiritual qualities of owls and buffalo respectively. In each book, three traditional tales are retold by a native writer, helping youngsters to understand the connection between storytelling and the natural world. Watercolor paintings accompany the stories while full-color photographs and museum reproductions appear within the informational texts. Indian designs add continuity to page layout. Large typeface, simple language, and generous trim size insure accessibility. These books are unique, attractive, and fill a need.?Jacqueline Elsner, Athens Regional Library, GA
