My sister brought home this book and it caught my eye. I liked how it was so descriptive of how the Cherokee Indians lived and what their daily routins were, it was very interesting. Aslo, the book was written in qustion/answer form, so it made it not boring to read.

This book is basically about how

it would be like to live with Cherokee Indians. The book asks questions about how the Indians live, then answers them. For example,they explain what the Cherokees eat, wear, and do for fun. It is a very interesting book about how they live and kids will enjoy the information the book provides.

This would be an excellent book to read during a Native American unit. The teacher could have all of the children dress up like the Cherokee Indians did in the book. Also, the teacher could have the students write a list of what they share in common with the Cherokee Indians to have them see that everyone has some similarites even if they have a different culture.
