Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Biographies are one of the best ways for children to learn about the past. Seeing other eras through individual lives brings a depth of knowledge that learning facts can't approximate. In these days where seeking information is stressed, it is easy to lose meaning. Personalizing history through knowing its people is the best way to make history live. People from the past have much to teach our children about succeeding in the present. In this book that is part of the "Picture the American Past" series, Littlefield describes the physical, emotional and cultural horrors these relocated children faced, the strategies they used to survive and how today's schools are working to preserve the culture. Each page is filled with monochromatic historical pictures and few words. Though simple in sentence structure, these books don't ignore harsh facts and they choose poignant quotes from children to illustrate situations. 2001, Carolrhoda, . Ages 8 to 10. Reviewer: Susie Wilde
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-In 1879, the United States government began to take Indian children from their reservations and place them in boarding schools where they would learn English and Christianity. In many cases, the parents of these children had no choice but to comply with the government officials. Littlefield's text is factual and spare. She lets the incredible photographs and other illustrative materials tell the story. Readers are sure to be moved or angered by some of the pictures, which clearly depict the stripping of a culture. One particularly poignant photo shows three young men in their native dress; on the same page, viewers see the same three with haircuts, attired in suits and ties, looking uncomfortable and unhappy. The author's research is evident in her resource list. However, one of the most valuable sections in the book is the chapter entitled "Understanding Historical Photographs." In it, Littlefield gives methods for studying photographs so that students can evaluate the realities shown. For teachers and librarians, this part of the book could be fodder for hours of discussion.-Barbara Buckley, Rockville Centre Public Library, NY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
