Second graders are studying Native American tribes. This one is from the perspective of the Wampanoag people. Nice paintings, lots of information, (though I am uncertain of the information's provenance)... but, ultimately, far too long for second graders in one sitting. Maybe I'll try it again over the course of two sessions. Maybe I'll find a different book in the future.
