Primary-Int. This book follows the lives of a Cherokee community and all the things that they celebrate and do during each season. It shows ceremony and tradition but in a realistic way that does not contribute to negative stereotypes. Good to read at Thanksgiving for a different perspective.

This book shows the Native American community. It sheds light on what it looks like in their community. Also what they are thankful for. It shows how they are not as different. ( )

Primary. Follows the life, traditions, and celebrations in a Cherokee tribe. It would be good to read at Thanksgiving as a non stereotypical portrayal of Indigenous people.

This book is geared towards 2nd to 3rd grade students.

This book uses Cherokee Indian words and talks about all of the things that we have to be grateful for. The book highlights all of the seasons and what they bring. The book shows the beauty of Cherokee Indian culture.

I would use this book to talk about culture. This could be a great book to read around American Thanksgiving. It gives a positive light to the Indigenous people and talks about things to be grateful for. ( )

This book would be a good read for primary readers as it is simple but does have some indigenous language in it. It includes pronunciation for the indigenous words which would be great for kids to learn how to sign them out and say them. The book is a great book about family traditions tied around the Cherokee heritage and history. This children's book is filled with vibrant images and colors, also with many traditions that families all around the world partake in so it can be a mirror and a window for students. ( )
