Recommended to Lisa by: Abigail A.
Christopher is eleven and is the person featured in this book, a book his cousin wrote. It’s biographical, and includes a lot about Christopher and his family, but also quite a bit of history background is given too. This book’s information is presented via both text and photographs.

It’s interesting to me how in this photojournalism biographical series, “My World: Young Native Americans Today” and in the “We Are Still Here: Native Americans Today” series, Native Americans do refer to themselves

Audience- Kindergarten-5th grade students, Native American students, students with ethic backgrounds, classroom teachers, and librarians

Appeal- This book takes an inside look into the life of an Osage Indian boy. Even though Christopher shares his Osage customs and traditions with the reader, he also highlights the every day activities he and his family do. Therefore, this book would be great to discuss the similarities and differences in Christopher's life as an Osage Indian compared to whoever
