More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A large quantity of information on the different traditions, history, culture, food, social structures, clothing, and current issues of the Yanomami people are explained in clear and easy text. The format is well-organized and user friendly. For example, the author has highlighted the difficult and cultural words within the text and included them in a glossary at the back of the book so readers can learn their meaning. Each page has large full-color photographs to help the reader visualize the text. The book also has a map of South America, with the Amazon Basin marked, so that readers will understand where the Yanomami live. The book, part of the "Indigenous Peoples" series, also has a time line, "fascinating facts," further reading, web sites, and an index which will help with research reports. This is a good source for school reports or for students interested in the Yanomami people. 2004, Weigl Publishers Inc, Ages 8 to 12.

Gr 3-5-These titles provide a wealth of information on traditionally underrepresented people in children's books. Each one discusses the history, social structure, language, culture, and current issues facing the indigenous group. Sidebars offer profiles of individuals and additional notes on customs, clothing, and more. The issue of nudity, mentioned specifically in two of the books (with an explanation that due to extremely hot temperatures not much clothing is worn and that the people are "not ashamed of nudity") is handled with care and respect, and the photographs are appropriate for young audiences. Each cover features a striking close-up of a child's face, and the well-designed pages provide a mixture of vivid color photographs, historical drawings, and eye-catching graphics.-Sue Morgan, Tom Kitayama Elementary School, Union City, CA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
