This is a very nice, heart-warming story. Good one for kids to hear. The art is beautiful, and fits in well with the theme of the book. Read it back when I was eight or so, and I still love it. Whether it's an authentic Pueblo story is irrelevant; people think too much about these things. Good choice for your first or second grader.

Unfortunately a misrepresentation of Pueblo culture. It should however be used as a resource to teach students/kids about how authors and illustrators can get things wrong.

Great book!

This particular illustration style doesn't appeal to me, but it's a nice enough folk tale.

A beautiful book with incredibly detailed Native American art. Great discussion starter with younger kids.
