Learn history and have fun! 
  • Build an Iroquois longhouse
  • Play an Inuit Game

I read this book aloud to my children as part of our studies on Native Nations.

This book is part of the Discovering Canada series. I found that the content was interesting, and I liked that the book included some suggestions for hands-on activities. The language is more suitable for older children (recommended reading level is ages 9-12), so it was a good fit for my 9 year-old daughter. Her favourite parts of the book were the legends and myths of the different native tribes.

The detailed black and white illustrations on each two-page spread were my favourite part of the book! 

MY RATING: 3 stars! It was good! I enjoyed it!

This book qualifies as:
#82 for my 2011 100+ Reading Challenge
