Age:
Grades 4-8

Genre:
Poetry Haiku

Diversity:
Native Indians of North America/Latino/Central America/South America


Illustrations:
Artwork by Rafael Lopez depicts drawings and colors that reflect earthy colors and natural colors. People are painted with natural colors according to their origins.

Personal response:
This was a good lesson about foods native to North America that were used by Native Americans, foods native to Central America and South America. It was a lesson in history and provides the reader with a sense of heritage about foods such as pumpkins which are from Central America and blueberries from the state of Maine which were used by Native Americans.

Curricular or programming connections:
Learning how to write a Haiku poem and also a history lesson about the various origins of these foods would be a good lesson for children.
