    Outstanding This is the perfect way to teach history forge a connection between people of the past and present the reader This is the story of 2 Lenape Native American girls and their families and communities, who each tell virtually the same story They live close to the land, and the account goes for a year, from spring to spring I love how on the left side of the page the girl from the past and on the right side of the page the modern girl, are both shown in lush and lovely illustrations, and [...]

    Shadbush got its name because it blooms when the shad fish are running up river to spawn This story, about the Lenni Lenape Native people of both the past and the present, focuses on structuring life around nature and the seasons, such as the time to fish for shad Each double page spread shows the lives of both Traditional Sister and Contemporary Sister, comparing and contrasting their experiences and family relationships at the same time and place in the cycle of seasons Depending on the time o [...]

    01 11 What a unique perspective This book tells of the seasons in Delaware from the point of view of both a Native American family from the past and a Native American family from the present The information on Delaware is good, but even impressive is how this conveys the point that people are people We come from different times, places, religious beliefs, etc But people are people I love that the modern family preserves some of the traditional elements, like the cradle board Isn t that like al [...]

    I chose this book to put on my list of multicultural books about spring that I did for a class project I really liked this book because it depicts two similar Native American families, one living in the past and one in the future who have the same background and culture but whose lives are different because of the times On each left page is a title of the scene in the language of the Lenni Lenape people and on the other is the title in English It really is a beautiful book and I think all teache [...]

  6. Melle

    This is a gorgeous, reflective book about historical and contemporary family traditions, specifically in indigenous Lenape culture, but there are so many universals across tribal nation cultures and global family traditions gardening together, harvesting together, telling stories together, being together This book makes me incredibly, breathtakingly homesick for my friends and family of the heart in Leech Lake Nation The kind of book that s meant to be enjoyed for kids on the laps and with plent [...]

  7. Matthew

    This is one of those books that everyone who teaches this material every year should be certain to have in their collection It s simple and clear and entertaining and makes something that would otherwise require a lot of explanation into a reasonable understandable topic I don t have this in my own library yet but it s going to be added soon now that I ve found it.

    I loved the tie to historical roots that was an emphasis in this book The children talk about how they do many of the same things that their ancestors before them did Each page shows the ancestors and descendants doing the same things, but differently due to modern inventions Would be a wonderful book to use in the classroom.This is one of my picture book selections.

  13. Giselle

    I noticed that the illustrations on each page were different yet demonstrating the same interactions The family is very connected and the expression of the people are well represented It was interesting how each turn of the page had a different meaning and representation of the given word.The artistic style is symmetrical interaction beacuse the text and illustrations give the story but the pictures are giving meaning While the story goes through the seasons with the family connecting with natu [...]

  14. Heather

    I m on the fence on this one I like the idea of comparisons between two time periods but at the same time it seems to show similarities See it s ok it s not so different from the way it used to be before the white men Different clothes and buildings but otherwise the changes have been acceptable I doubt any Native American leaders or historians would agree But that s just my interpretation I think it can be an nice companion book to a unit on Native American culture and how the European expansi [...]

  15. Traci Bold

    Telling a story between two different eras is tricky but in this adaptation of an old Native American story, the parallel of old time on the left versus current time on the right, blends it perfectly.Creative and thoughtful A wonderful book for teachers and parents alike to share with children.Written by Carla Messinger with Susan Katz illustrated by David Kanietakerin Fadden Published by Tricycle Press PB NativeAmerican traditions

  16. Devon Donahue-reid

    This book is beautiful Not only does in show a direct comparison from a time generations ago now You can see how things have changed and how things have stayed the same It shows traditions and cultures and would be great to use in an early elementary school social studies lesson You can connect the use of land to traditions, the way seasons and climate affect daily life, and ideas of community and culture.

  17. Khris

    Wonderful picture book that links a cultural past to a contempory cultural identify still very much alive It s refreshing to see books like this written by Native authors The folks at Oyate are probably pleased to be able to add this to their list of recommended books.

  18. Maggi Rohde

    Messinger tells the same story two ways, using illustrations from long ago and from present day to show how Native Americans interact with their world and all the beings in it.

  19. Nancy Shaffer

    Definitely, rooted in tradition Good introduction to some of these traditions include eating, taking cleaning the home, spending time together as a family, farming and fishing Enjoyed the language.

  20. Ms. Shea Brandford

    An amazing book discussing First Nations culture and traditions Excellent for Social Studies learning outcomes.

  21. Richard WSUV
