Debbie Reese recommends. I read this book for a class assignment and thought it was definately educational The book was ok just not what I expected I found myself learningabout how leather is made. This simple book with lovely sketched illustrations explains about how moccasins are made It is an easy way to teach children about the ways of the aboriginal people in Canada A lovely book. 3rd grademessage being sent to children diversity how other children live. Children in an urban school are curious about a classmate s moccasins I enjoyed this story Although the wording is pretty simple, I really like how he shares the story of how his Kookum grandmother went through all of those tasks to make his moccasins. A great story on a topic many may be unfamiliar with The pencil illustrations alone are worth the read.
