Booklist Review

Gr. 2^-5. Two new titles in the Native Peoples series focus on the Choctaw and the Shoshone. The Choctaw were the first tribe forced to leave their homeland in the southeastern U.S. and move to Oklahoma. Today the Choctaw are divided into several groups throughout the U.S. The Shoshone lived in small bands in western North America, and a young Shoshone woman, Sacagawea served as guide and interpreter for the Lewis and Clark expedition. Today most Shoshone live on reservations in the western U.S. Each volume focuses on various aspects of tribal life, such as history, clothing, government, and daily life, with clear and concise text and colorful photos showing contemporary members of the tribe. Covering both history and present-day activities, this is a good series to introduce young readers to specific American Indian tribes. A hands-on activity, a glossary, a reading list, addresses, and Internet sites are appended. --Karen Hutt


School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-6-Written in clear and simple sentences, appropriate for both younger readers and children with reading challenges, these titles offer basic information about the history and lifestyles of the particular Native culture, with an emphasis on the people in today's world. Each volume begins with a map that notes the historical tribal location and fast facts on housing, food, clothing, and language. Topics covered include history, government, and beliefs. Each book also includes a legend. Since these subjects are dealt with in a single page of text, no more than an overview is presented. The full-page, color photographs are attractive, but largely decorative. A recipe or craft concludes each volume. Consider these offerings where the need for additional titles on Native Americans is great.-Linda Greengrass, Bank Street College Library, New York City (c) Copyright 2010.
