Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Long ago, the Native American tribes living in our Pacific Northwest didn't have books for passing down their people's history to future generations. Like other tribes, they used story, ceremony and dance for this purpose. But they had another special way to communicate—the totem pole. This entertaining book in the popular "All Aboard Reading" series shows beginning readers how the giant wooden poles were carved, and how their designs told a story. The full color illustrations are done in the style of Native American totem art and are reminiscent of primitive wood block prints. 2001, Grosset & Dunlap, $13.89 and $3.99. Ages 6 to 8. Reviewer: Dianne Ochiltree
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Frantz takes on the daunting task of explaining the importance of totem poles to beginning readers. She is most successful when she describes how the poles are made and how they were raised traditionally. To her credit, she shows both historical and contemporary settings. Her description of the place of totem poles in Haida culture is necessarily oversimplified, and her attempt to cover everything in so few pages of limited-vocabulary text results in some sketchy information. She begins with the heading "The Pacific Northwest, 1750," which says very little to first and second graders. She describes a pole-raising event and writes that "People in costumes are dancing," but the woodcut illustrations show no one in costume or dancing until several pages later. Eitzen's art is striking but stylized so it is hard to hold it to accuracy. However, a double-page map that shows a segment of the Canadian-Alaskan coast with an inset that features an outline of northern North America is not going to serve the intended audience well. With no labels on these maps, it will be the rare child who will be able to figure out what is being depicted. Those who want to explore Northwest-coast cultures with a young audience may want to investigate adapting the activities in Nan McNutt's The Bentwood Box and The Button Blanket (both Sasquatch, 1997).-Sue Sherif, Fairbanks North Star Borough Public Library, AK Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
