This outstanding resource explores the portrayal of the native experience in children’s books and includes detailed reviews of hundreds of books, including many Canadian titles.

Great resource for educators and anyone interested in Native authors and works! From SLJ: this book "points out the failure of mainstream publishers to represent Native work, and the crucial role that teachers and librarians must play in questioning non-Native work and in seeking authentic criticism."
