    Such a great read Love the layout of this book Simple rhythms for younger children, but other passages that go in depth on each topic This would be great for homeschoolers and classrooms alike

    D is for Drum is an alphabet which discusses some element of Native American culture for each letter It also includes lovely illustrations to go with each entry This work is a multi genre text, including poetry, informational prose, and alphabetical entries like in a reference text It establishes the relationship that can exist with our own cultures However, it should not be used as a reliable source when doing research as not everything is completely accurate, and it uses blanket statements to classify all Native Americans instead of focusing on a particular tribe This children s book would serve as a mentor text as students explore their own culture Keep in mind that one s culture can be than just race and ethnicity Culture is anything that has an impact on who you are Students would use Kelly Gallagher s Encyclopedia of Ordinary Life strategy to organize ideas and create a representation of the various cultures in their lives They would also be welcome to mimic the structure of D is for Drum by making each entry a four line poem.

    As a Pueblo Indian woman, I immediately recognized that the people on the cover of this book are meant to be Pueblo Indians The illustration, however, is an incorrect portrayal of how we do that particular dance There are additional problems with this bookDetails here

    A respectfully done, well written, thoroughly vetted book about various tribes throughout North America.

    This book uses the alphabet to describe different parts of the Native American cultures Each page has a different alphabet letter in a poem describing something about the culture On the side of each page, it talks about the word that used the alphabet letter in further detail I liked the way this book used an alphabet letter to introduce a word from the culture and then went into detail on the side of the page If this book was used in a classroom, it would work perfectly for older children For younger children, as a teacher, it would probably work better to pick and choose the information out of the side writing that you wanted to share so that you didn t lose the children s interest Multi cultural

    This alphabet book contains four line poems for each letter as well as a few paragraphs of detailed informational text on the side of the page Each letter discusses an aspect of Native American culture Oyate a Native organization put this book on their Books to Avoid list for containing a mishmash of Indian cultural snippets and boring yet confusing informational text www.oyate.com I found this book intriguing and on the contrary, thought it did a good job of discussing different Native tribes throughout the text The informational paragraphs in the side panels discuss how these tribes used to be, and on a few instances how they are now I also thought that this book was suitable for the text set because Toddy, the illustrator, is known worldwide as an important contemporary Navajo painter www.bluedegree.gallery.com Oyate commented, Toddy s artwork, for the most part, is better than the text But most of the faces lack individuality and bodies are distorted I originally thought this book was an excellent choice, however after reading this review I am conflicted The founders of the Native organization, Oyate, have obviously been offended in some way by this book I included this in my text set for now, because I still find value in reading aloud and discussing the concepts mentioned in this book.

    This is one of my favorite books I ve read this year Although it is meant for K 5, it is still a great way to learn a few things about Native Americans.Summary This book talks about different things that start with each letter of the alphabet A Z , like a particular group of Natives or an animal It also has some letters representing music, transportation, food or objects For example, in the book the letter N was for names, and it had native names and what they translate to in English So Honi means wolf, Woya means dove, and Nita is Choctaw for bear 3 different cultures but they all have a translation for their native names.How to use this book with students The book is geared for Kindergarten through 5th grade, but I believe it can be used in a higher grade as a lower level example You could do this by having students write their own little 4 line poem about something for every letter of the alphabet You could also use this as a podcast for your class You would record yourself reading the book and then you could post it on a classroom blog.

    This book was okay It was about the native Americans and their life styles The book went through the whole alphabet and describe different things that the indians did or used I was very creative and the pictures were very pretty My favorite picture was the painting of the heard of stallions The horses looked like they were jumping off the page YOu could use this book to help teach you class about the alphabet.

    This book was lurking in the non fiction shelved of the children s section I feel however that a copy should be put in the young adult area as well.I call this a combination book It has short poems for a 2nd or 3rd grader but has great history on native american tribes for the older child This book would be a great asset for a kid doing a report on such a subject AR 7.1

    D is for Drum A Native American Alphabet is a good way for teachers to introduce a unit about Native Americans It would also make a great resource for students if they are doing a project about Native Americans The introduces customs and cultures of the many tribes that inhabited America, from A Z.
