Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ginjer L. Clarke
This collection of five short stories about Kaya, a Nez Perce girl growing up before America became a country, offers strong lessons in respecting the earth, your elders, tradition, and your own inner strength. It offers girls—as all of the American Girls products do—images of strong women in their times and focuses on the connections among mothers, grandmothers, daughters, sisters, and friends. Kaya is depicted as wanting to be a leader for her tribe, and the stories are tied together by her obtaining increasingly more responsibility as she matures. Native words are used throughout and are explained in the language index at the back. Several short nonfiction pieces explain the life of the Nez Perce in the late 1700s, including how they used medicine and healing, traded goods, worked together, protected themselves, and gathered food by traveling nomadically with the seasons. Photos are included in the nonfiction pieces, and small spot illustrations, as well as occasionally full-page paintings, are scattered throughout the short stories. This is a lovely collection for girls to read on their own or as a lesson accompaniment in the classroom. Part of the "American Girls Collection" series.
