Middle School (9 - 14) Books

PUEBLO STORYTELLER, Diane Hoyt-Goldsmith. New York : Holiday House, 1991. (Grades 3-6)

Ten-year old April of Cochiti Pueblo takes the reader on a photographic visit through the pueblo, introducing him to her family, traditional methods of bread-baking, pottery-making and drum-making. She participates in a Buffalo Dance and tells the reader her favorite creation story. An excellent title to introduce children to the world of the contemporary reservation child. A superb complementary title, from a boy's perspective, is Pueblo Boy : GrowingUp in Two Worlds, Marcia Keegan. New York : Dutton, 1991. Reviewed by Lisa Mitten and Naomi Caldwell-Wood
