The Yakari series, about a Sioux boy who can talk with animals, is filled with lessons about nature, friendship, courage and perseverance. This series is being translated, volume by volume, into English from the original French by 9th Cinebook. The illustrations are wonderful, and the text is inviting for young readers.
