The adventures of the story is fast paced and keeps the reader turning the pages for the outcomes.The glossary helps with pronunciation and comprehension and the illustrations are clear and speaks of the Native American history.The story piques the readers interest to find out more about the lifestyles of our Native American Ancestors . The word count is low enough for a child to read quickly and the chapters are short and to the point.
I really like this book and I found it fun and informative.Children of all ages will find this book a real treat.
A lovely children's story filled with pieces of information that are creative and helpful in learning. Loved the simple little story of two different cultures becoming friends, and Brenda's sweet, informative and colorful pictures added the right touch of interest. Loved, loved, loved the activities and the word definitions, the glossary and the informaton about the months.
Well done, Lisa! This is a book all families should have in their libraries.
This early reader chapter book not only teaches a good moral lesson, it also incorporates historical facts and makes learning fun. I recommend it to teachers of elementary school, librarians, and parents of 1-3 graders.
This 34 page book will appeal to parents (home-schooling and others) and to their children.
In common with talented author Lisa J. Lickel’s other works her writing style is such that this book is educational, informative, intriguing and fun, while reading skills are developed and history based facts examined.
Set in the early 1800s, ‘Green Leaf, The Potawatomi Boy’ is a children's story that interweaves history and the Potawatomi Indian culture. We learn easily about two young boys who work in harmony to overcome cultural differences, to embrace friendship, and be neighbours.
I recommend this heart-warming book as ideal for children in the 8 to 12 age group. The illustrations are simple and graceful and the book includes cleverly drawn activity pages and a glossary
This is No. 1 in a series of 5 about the ‘First Children of Farmington’. I look forward to reading more of them.
Well done, Lisa.
Reading level would be lower elementary but even older children can enjoy the story, and younger ones will like hearing it read aloud. I enjoyed the story and the artwork, and learning why it is so important that "Friends learn to say one another's words."
