An Excellent Book for Young Children

This book is planned to be "read to" or "read by" young children. The print is large, arranged in simple sentences, and stresses information likely to appeal to a child's sense of wonder. It is well designed with plenty of beautiful photographs. The book also contains a very good index and a section entitled, "Words You Should Know," which assists a reader in understanding the use of difficult or exotic sounding words used in the text.This book is excellent as the author balances the old ways of the Hopi with the new while delving into the mystic world of Kachinas, Kivas, and Sipapus. She imparts this information without overwhelming a young reader. The author doesn't mention the clash of cultures caused by the Hopi and Navajo contesting for decades over the same land nor the fact these tribes aren't particularly friendly toward one another. However, that information should wait until a child develops sufficient maturity to understand the rivalry between the two tribes.This book is a welcome addition to a young person's library. They can be entertained, educated about Southwestern Indian culture, and introduced to ancient Americans who practice another way of life. What can be a better teaching tool for imparting information, understanding and tolerance?
