Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-This simplistic book adds to the popular publishing fad of combining factual texts with crafts, but there is just not enough substance here to support the effort. The most cursory of introductory information is paired with some easy, and not-so-easy projects. The crafts are presented without letting children know why they might want to make a canoe or a colorful bead necklace. A lot of modeling clay goes into the activities, calling for skills that may be far beyond the age of the readership. The dwelling, maloca, seems to require a lot of coordination in placing the framework for the bark-skin house. Insufficient background about rainforest plants and animals is provided for those who attempt the diorama project. Teachers and students deserve more substantial material about indigenous people.-Jacqueline Elsner, Athens Regional Library, GA
