Whenever I pick up an alphabet book, I immediately look to see if the Q, X, and Z are authentic or if the author had to do some finagling to get them to work with the concept of the book. This book doesn't have that problem at all (Quechua, Xavante, Zulu)! You could use it with younger readers and just read M is for Maori, or you could go deeper and read the two verses of rhyming text that accompany each tribe. There are also additional notes about each tribe in the back of the book (and a pronunciation guide). The end papers show a map of the world with the tribes pictured where they are located and the country for each identified. It's a necessity for any Elementary school library!!!
A note from the author and illustrator at the end explains that they began the project with their own children, to help them appreciate the diversity that's in the world. Sadly, many indigenous peoples are in danger of losing their culture completely. Contact information for the organization "Cultural Survival" is included.Read more ›
