This book is WONDERFUL for showing children (and adults) that there were different types of Native Americans...with different homes, food, customs, etc... No more, "everyone lived in a teepee" Great way to link geography to social studies. Simple enough to read alone (for 3rd-5th)but better if EXPLAINED along the way, using a map and looking at natural resources. I have used this book for YEARS in my classroom, and it always amazes the kids.

I bought this book to read to my Kindergarten class. The book provides information on several different tribes and their culture. Although I found it to be a bit "wordy" for 5-year-olds, I showed the interesting and colorful illustrations and summarized the parts I felt they needed to know. Overall, a good teaching resource and I will use it again.

I teach a 4's preschool class and recently got this book for my kids. I was worried it would be too wordy or adult for them. However, the book is split into sections that teach about the different American Indians. So every few days, we would talk about another tribe. It was a great way to compare and contrast them. My kids love maps, so we also pulled that into the equation as well. Overall, this book was the best one I found...and it was very informative and, in small chunks, was great for my preschoolers!

I purchased this book based on the other positive reviews, planning to use it in a unit on Pre-Columbian America. Unfortunately, it contains at least one glaring error -- and if I can spot one major error, I imagine there must be others. The Plains Indians didn't have horses until after they obtained them from the Spanish, so the entire section on the Plains Indians is wrong.

Bought this book for my 6 year old grandson and he really has enjoyed it...and learned a lot about Native Americans from the book. This is a great age for kids to learn things, just seeds of ideas that can shape their entire life. This book is well illustrated, the text is interesting to kids, descriptive and it is amazing what parts of the story they will focus.
I recommend this book for those who would like to guide their children into an interest in native American culture.

This book does a wonderful job of presenting historical traditions of native people's without denying or ignoring the struggles Native Americans experienced after their "discovery" by Christopher Columbus. A breath of fresh air for parents interested in presenting a more accurate historical picture for children while still being child appropriate.

I bought this book to counteract the schools European centric model of teaching American history. It's a wonderful book with clear detailed descriptions of different tribes and a great start to our history teachings. It showed my daughter how vast and different the tribes were across the land and that America has a history that begins before the Europeans came here.
