Native Americans Set 2 – School Library Journal

…titles cover the same topics for each tribal group in question. They open with a brief description of the territorial homeland of the people. Then, short chapters describe the group’s society, homes, food, clothing, crafts, family, children, myths, war, and contact with Europeans. Each one introduces an important person…Finally, there is a brief discussion of the people today. The overall visual presentation of the material is highly attractive, with brightly colored illustrations, both drawings and photographs, accompanying the text…they are informative and well captioned. The texts are written in short, simple declarative sentences, making the information readily accessible to the targeted audience. Boldfaced type indicates a word that is contained in the glossary, although in many cases the narrative sufficiently conveys its meaning. In general, these books offer young children a positive view of American Indian cultures in a bright, accessible format.
