Ama's Picture Books

My grandmother recently left me her entire collection of picture books and children's literature. The entire collection is comprised of over 300 books. I am attempting to read as many as possible in 2014.

How the Moon Regained Her Shape

How the Moon Regained Her Shape - Janet Ruth Heller

written by Janet Ruth Heller, illustrated by Ben Hodson


Go here for good critiques on this story. My warning flags went up when I was reading the dust jacket copy (mentions of Native American folk tales with no specific tribes/nations mentioned anywhere in the book). I want to like this book because science, but I can't because of the terrible/disrespectful representation of American Indians. Skip this one.
