's review

it was amazing

I love the bilingual text. My grandfather grew up in the time of the Indian Schools and wasn't allowed to speak his birth mother's language for fear that he'd be taken away. I only learned a handful of words that he knew so I appreciate seeing the story in both languages (I would also enjoy an audio version, told in both languages, so I could hear my great-grandmother's tongue).

The drawings are beautifully rendered and the moral of the story is one that many children -regardless of heritage- need to learn. This story serves as a reminder that humans do impact the environment.
