The only thing that could of made this book better would be the listing of Moon names of some of the different tribes, in a glossary of chart at the back of the book. You will find teaching ideas that go with this book on line. More advanced students can look up the moon names of some of the other tribes on their own, for the tribes in the area they live. These names vary because the moons are named for the things happening in each different geographical region the tribe is living in. I highly recommend this book as a teaching tool. ( I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. ) You may wish to check the vocabulary level, before having students try this book on there own, but there is still a great deal you can do with this book, by just reading it to them.

I purchased this for a baby shower gift, along with some handmade baby/toddler moccasins from the Huron Nation in Canada. If you are looking for some truly American literature, this chapter book for children (and adults!) is awesome. Native American (First Nations in Canada) frequently named the months of the year (figured by moon phases) for the events from that time period of each moon phase. Thus, a month that had a lot of ice storms and ice on the trees' branches may, in some groups, be called "Moon of Crackling Trees," and so on. The names did differ by group, influenced by local cultures and by geography. What this book does is to sample the names of the moons by different groups (one group's name per moon phase) and explain the reasons why a specific group named that moon phase by a particular name. The fun of this book is interest people to explore the full range of names each of the Native Groups gave the moons - this book is a start. It will stimulate people to learn more about each of the Nations/Tribes featured in this book. The Native groups were all diverse, spoke different languages, and had different cultures, so this is a great introduction! The artwork is very good. Turtle in some Native cultures, was believed to carry the earth on her back, hence the name of the book. Wonderful, fun and interesting book - I recommend it!

Beautiful illustrations, beautiful stories. Keeping the ancient wisdom moving into the hands and hearts of our children. Cross-cultural, this book offers stories from different American Indian cultures about the phases of the moon. I want my children to have a deeper understanding of how as human beings we are interconnected with All Life. Including the moon, which is so interesting and visible to children. This book helps bring a little soul and magic in to my children's thinking about the night sky and the moon.

Superbly written. I read this to my students and now I have it a home to reference during each full moon. This monthly reading is becoming a tradition in my home.

My grandson is on his way to becoming adopted into our family. He is from the Blackfoot tribe so I thought this would be a good book for him.

I bought this book for my son's Christmas present as we needed more Native American written books in our library. Jo Bruchac is one of the best children's authors I know. This book has beautiful illustrations and wonderful stories about each moon cycle. I just wish I knew which moon cycle was which, so that we could identify them.
