5.0 out of 5 stars A gem of a book
This book was given to my husband as a Xmas gift and we liked it so much we bought a copy for a good friend. The illustrations are gorgeous, the text is witty and moving. Definitely should be on the bookshelf of anyone who appreciates Native American culture.

1.0 out of 5 stars Offensive
I bought this for a family that had just adopted a Native American child. I'm glad I took the time to read it before wrapping it. References to 'the res' and government cheese were quite off-putting. Is this the best the author could come up with to honor such a culturally rich demographic? It made me both sad and angry.

This review is from: Native American Night Before Christmas (Hardcover)
This has always been my favorite Christmas poem , at one time I could recite it. This version is uses Native American items and at the end of the book there is a glossary to explain some NA terms used, such as fry bread, or "Old Red Shirt".

This was a gift for my Grandson's, I wanted then to learn how the Christmas Holiday was celebrated in other countries. It's an excellent book and has explanations of words used so a child can enjoy the story.

This review is from: Native American Night Before Christmas (Hardcover)
This is a book that I bought after I had seen it Narrated on PBS. It reminded me of how my Unc would tell me stories growing up. Plus, for those that are familiar with some of the Native words, it has definitions in the back.
