The pictures and the text provide a thorough view into a unique way of living based on the traditions of many generations in the desert southwest.
Children love to seeing pictures of children working with clay. It shows so many of the steps -- actually going out and digging for the clay to firing the pots. My daughter still asks me if we can go dig for some clay so she can make some pots.
Use it as a travel guide for children especially if you are going to New Mexico and will be visiting pueblos and are interested in the adobe structures and pots.
It pairs well with Grandmother's Adobe Dollhouse.
