I loved the story of Omakayas and her family.
I can't wait to read it to my granddaughter when she gets a little older, about Omakayas's age, 7 or 8. Louise Erdrich is one of my favorite authors and I am so glad she wrote a series of stories for children. However, I believe it is a family story that everyone in the family would enjoy if the children are at least 7 or 8. (As a child, I never cared for the Little House on the Prairie books. It might be in part because I didn't grow up in the midwest. I don't know.) But I do know that this story is written with depth and love for the indigenous people on the island.
