In Keepers Of The Animals: Native American Stories And Wildlife Activities For Children, the 24 lovingly told and magically illustrated stories about "our relations, the animals" demonstrate the power and importance of animals in Native American traditions and are more relevant today than ever. as the stories unfold and the activities come to life, a holistic, interdisciplinary approach to Native American attitudes toward animals takes shape. Keepers Of The Animals provides a complete program of study in the important concepts of wildlife ecology and environmental issues concerning animals. The activities have been extensively field-tested and involve children in creative arts, theater, reading, writing, science, social studies, mathematics and sensory awareness. They engage a child's whole self, while emphasizing creative thinking and synthesis of knowledge and experience. Highly recommended for personal, school and public library collections. -- Midwest Book Review
